By the time Tyler Hilinski found Jamal Morrow in the flat for the decisive touchdown of Saturday’s extravaganza, it felt like eons had passed since Luke Falk broke Washington State’s all-time passing record with a 59-yard bomb to Renard Bell. Really, it’d only been a few quarters and three overtime periods. And by the time the game ended, Falk’s record-breaker was probably not even of the 15 most important plays in Washington State’s 47-44 triumph over Boise State. There was so much to digest and little time to do it, which gives us plenty of leftovers this week.
Winning it all a shade under midnight probably isn’t how the Cougars drew this up last week while they were scouting Boise State inside their practice bubble.
It was in the fourth quarter of this cinematic drama disguised as a football game when one of the Cougars’ youngest cubs approached one of the team’s eldest statesmen and made a bold prediction.
Prior to Saturday, Tyler Hilinski had attempted 39 passes in just over one season wearing a Washington State uniform. But the sophomore quarterback emerged as one of several WSU heroes late Saturday night as the Cougars escaped a 21-point fourth-quarter deficit to beat Boise State 47-44 in triple overtime.
Having worked overtime all week, the gray haze smothering the region took Saturday off, for the most part – the air on the Palouse no worse than if it was just combines kicking up dust in the distance near Albion.
Losses always hurt. But sometimes wins, even improbable ones like Washington State’s 47-44 triple-overtime victory over Boise State can hurt even longer.

Defensive tackle Hercules Mata’afa, linebacker Frankie Luvu and free safety Robert Taylor combined on WSU’s first defensive touchdown since 2015.
Senior quarterback Luke Falk continued to add to his WSU record collection.
Other than the long heave that made him Washington State’s career passing leader, Luke Falk didn’t find much success throwing the ball downfield. The short pitches and pops that bailed out Falk against Montana State? They weren’t there either.
This time last year, River Cracraft probably didn’t imagine he’d be in Pullman on the eve of opening day in the NFL.
There’s bound to be more than a few obstacles awaiting the Cougars and Broncos tonight at Martin Stadium. Air quality won’t be one of them.
WSU plays Boise State at home in Pullman on Saturday, Sept. 9, 2017.
A wise man named Mike Leach once said that football games are won and lost up front, and anybody who’s ever watched a football game at any level would probably surmise the same. That’s what my pick comes down to.
The 20th-ranked Cougars (1-0, 0-0) get the Broncos (1-0, 0-0) at home this year and can begin making amends for last year’s result when the ball is kicked off at 7:30 p.m. Saturday at Martin Stadium. ESPN will carry the national television broadcast.
Air quality in Pullman isn’t nearly as severe as it was earlier in the week and it shouldn’t interfere with Saturday night’s football game between Washington State and Boise State.
