Last season, Washington State’s Luke Falk had the second highest completion percentage in the country, while throwing more passes than anyone in all of FBS football. The fifth-year senior quarterback could finally receive the attention his numbers suggest he deserves, if he can find replacements for now-departed wide receivers Gabe Marks and River Cracraft. The first step in the process takes place at Joe Albi Stadium as the Cougs conduct their annual Crimson vs. Gray scrimmage. In 2017, WSU hopes to build on their 8-5 season (7-2 in Pac-12 play), which saw a revitalized defense, now headlined by two returning starters, junior lineman Hercules Mata’afa and senior linebacker Peyton Pelluer. The best part about the game for local Coug fans? It doesn’t matter which side you root for.
