Cole Madison has been an anchor on an offensive line that has allowed Washington State quarterback Luke Falk to tear up the opposition through the air and allowed the Cougars trio of running backs to run free. On Monday, Pro Football Focus' college football twitter account tweeted out that Madison was the top-graded offensive tackle in college football.

Madison, who according to the tweet allowed just two sacks out of 648 pass block snaps this year, helped give Cougar quarterbacks time in the pocket to finish in the top-4 in completions (437), attempts (613), yards (4,449), touchdowns (39), and passing yards per game (370.8) this season.

It was not all pass protection this season for the 6'5, 345-lb right tackle as the Cougar running backs were able to rush for 23 touchdowns and 1,522 yards. The most since the 2006 season when they rushed for 1,540 yards.

The redshirt junior who earned All-Pac-12 honorable mention last season has been named the Bone Award recipient  twice this season. The award is given to the teams best offensive lineman each week.
