Oregon State is looking for its first victory of the season against an FBS team. Washington State is looking to improve on first 2-0 start under coach Mike Leach. QB Luke Falk hopes to regain his mojo after being pulled in the second half against Boise State in favor of Tyler Hilinski.

Oregon State: QB Jake Luton opened the season with 304 passing yards in a loss to Colorado State.

Washington State: QB Falk will start, but Leach will not hesitate to put in Hilinski if the offense stalls again. RB Jamal Morrow has earned top billing among WSU’s three productive running backs. Offensive line must rise to occasion after being sharply criticized by Leach this week.
