Corvallis, OR (SportsNetwork.com) - Luke Falk threw for a career-high 471 yards and five touchdowns, leading the Washington State Cougars over the Oregon State Beavers, 39-32, in a Pac-12 Conference matchup at Reser Stadium.

Falk completed 44-of-61 pass attempts for the Cougars (3-7, 2-5 Pac-12), who snapped a four-game losing streak. Vince Mayle and Tyler Baker had 143 and 113 receiving yards, respectively, and each had a touchdown.

Sean Mannion threw for 419 yards and a touchdown on 31-of-41 passing for the Beavers (4-5, 1-5), who have lost their last four. Terron Ward carried the ball 11 times for 49 yards and two touchdowns.

Less than two minutes into the game, Connor Hamlett caught a 14-yard touchdown pass from Mannion to give the Beavers an early lead.

Several minutes later, Garrett Owens converted a 24-yard field goal to make it 10-0.

The Cougars got on the board just before the end of the first quarter, as Falk found Isiah Myers on a 5-yard touchdown pass. Early in the second quarter, Falk connected with Baker on a 21-yard touchdown pass, making it 14-10 Cougars.

Owens made good on another field goal with just under two minutes left in the half, from 37 yards, making it 14-13.

With 1:15 left in the half, Falk connected with Mayle on a 48-yard touchdown pass, extending the lead to 21-13.

Owens tacked on a 44-yarder with four seconds left before halftime, making it 21-16 at the break.

Just over four minutes into the second half, Quentin Breshears converted a 32- yard field goal, widening the Cougars' lead to 24-16.

Midway through the quarter, Ward carried the ball one yard for an Oregon touchdown, but the ensuing two-point conversion attempt to potentially tie the game failed, and it was 24-22.

The Beavers took back the lead in the first minute of the fourth quarter, as Owens converted another field goal, this one from 46 yards.

A few minutes later, Falk completed an 18-yard touchdown pass to Dom Williams, and the Cougars went back on top. With just under six minutes remaining, Falk found Robert Lewis for a 9-yard touchdown pass, giving the team a bigger lead at 39-25.
