Move over Matt Barkley: with his second touchdown pass today, Washington State Cougars quarterback Luke Falk now owns the Pac-12 career passing touchdowns record. Falk now has 117 touchdown passes in his decorated career.

He tied the mark early in the first quarter when he converted a 3rd-and-7 from the Utah 11-yard line, beating a blitz to find Tavares Martin Jr., who only needed to make a little jump cut to beat his defender into the end zone:

He then broke the mark close to halftime on another third down conversion, but this one came from the 1-yard line. Falk delivered a dart to Kyle Sweet, who came open after abusing a defensive back with his release at the line:

Falk now owns every major school and conference passing record, including passing yards (13,806 coming into the game), total offense (13,453), plays (2,171), completions (1,327) and attempts (1,931).

Not bad for a guy who started out as a walk-on.
