Washington State QB Luke Falk breaks Pac-12 passing yards record

Head coach David Shaw announced Thursday that he will start sophomore quarterback K.J. Costello over senior Keller Chryst in Saturday's matchup with no. 25 Washington State.

Stanford can clinch the Pac-12 North with wins against Washington State and Washington the next two weeks. Today's game takes place from Martin Stadium in Pullman, Washington and the contest will air live on FOX.


Falk, a senior, was benched last week in a 58-37 loss at Arizona. The Cougars are 4-2 in the Pac-12 and 5-4 against the spread, including 5-1 ATS at home. Their pass defense is giving up just 167.3 yards per game. Last year, Falk threw for 357 yards and four touchdowns in a victory over the Cardinal. Tavares Martin Jr. is the leading receiver with 48 catches for 638 yards and seven touchdowns while Jamal Morrow has 413 rushing yards and three scores. Junior running back Bryce Love was ruled out of the game because of last week's ankle injury, and the offense struggled without him. The Cardinal are now 6-2 on the season and 5-1 in the Pac-12. He averages 198 yards per game, and his participation will be a game-time decision. Falk came into Saturday's game as the career leader in pass attempts (1,860), completions (1,280), total offense (13,041) and total plays (2,093).

Costello has thrown 67 passes for 43 completions and 492 yards this season, he has a quarterback rating of 145.6 to Chryst's 123.1 and has yet to throw an interception in his career.
