An illustrated guide to rivalry week

Some games, like Alabama-Auburn, have major playoff implications. Others, like Ole Miss-Mississippi State, are just about good, old-fashioned hatred. But either way, these are the battles this weekend that make college football great.

Signature moment so far: Washington State

The Cougars' win over USC, one of its biggest in program history, wasn't complete until redshirt freshman Jahad Woods sacked QB Sam Darnold and forced a fumble with under two minutes to play to get the ball back.

The good, bad and ugly from Luke Falk

Falk doesn't have a big-time arm and is coming out of Mike Leach's Air Raid offensive system. But he is a pure pocket passer and could be an early Day 3 prospect.

FPI projects Cougs have small advantage

ESPN's FPI gives Washington State a slight edge over Utah this week, though the Cougars are 1-2 on the road compared to a 7-0 record at home this season. Utah has lost three straight games against AP-ranked opponents by a combined 13 points, including a 28-27 defeat at then-No. 13 USC earlier this year.

Falk, Hungalu, Pettis receive Pac-12 nods

Washington State QB Luke Falk made history with his 337 passing yards on Saturday, while Washington's Dante Pettis broke an NCAA record with his special-teams performance. Though it was in a losing effort, Oregon State LB Manase Hungalu had the most single-game tackles by a player in the conference this season.

Washington State coach Mike Leach joked he didn't get a good look at the fan who jumped the rail and dropped his pants on the field after the Cougars' second-quarter touchdown pass in their 24-21 win over Stanford. "I barely saw it," Leach told ESPN before cracking, "I miss streakers."

Kyle Bonagura ESPN Staff Writer 

Former Oregon State QB Sean Mannion had this message for Luke Falk after his Pac-12 career passing record fell on Saturday: "Congratulations to Luke for all of his accomplishments at WSU!" Mannnion told ESPN in a text message. "He is a great player and I wish him nothing but the best for the rest of his career!"

No. 25 Washington State remains alive in the Pac-12 title chase with a 24-21 win over No. 21 Stanford. The Cougars and Cardinal both have two losses in conference play, while No. 12 Washington has one. Stanford hosts the Huskies on Friday, in another important Pac-12 North contest.

Ivan Maisel ESPN Senior Writer 

Big win by Washington State, thanks to veteran QB & defense that got Stanford off field quickly (Card offense needs big help). Cougars must win two on road (including Apple Cup) to win Pac-12 North.
