The leftovers: Nuggets, notes and quotes from Washington State’s 47-44 triple OT win over Boise State

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.

Tyler Hilinski comes up big in WSU’s comeback win over Boise State

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.

Washington State beats Boise State with miracle comeback

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.

Washington State gets another chance to take down Boise State

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.
