Luke Falk may not be the most well known quarterback in the Pac-12 conference; however, the WSU sophomore continues to clean up on the national award circuit. 

For his 514-yard, five touchdown performance in the Cougars' 45-42 win over Arizona, Falk has been named the Maxwell Award player of the week. The award is presented each week to the best player in college football. 

Falk has also won two Pac-12 offensive player of the week awards this year and was also named the Walter Camp player of the week for his performance against Arizona.

On the season, Falk ranks second in the nation in passing yards (412.1), third in total offense (403.3) and fourth in passing touchdowns (26). Falk has thrown for over 1,400 yards and 16 touchdowns in the last three games, all Cougars victories.
