PULLMAN, Wash. – Washington State football saw the Crimson team post a 23-19 victory in the annual Crimson and Gray Game in front of 6,233 fans a Joe Albi Stadium in Spokane, Wash. Saturday.

Redshirt-senior quarterback Connor Halliday went 25-of-41 for 326 yards and three touchdowns to lead the Crimson team. Redshirt-freshman quarterback Luke Falk went 20-of-31 for 213 yards and one touchdown while fellow redshirt-freshman quarterback Tyler Bruggman went 12-of-28 for 154 yards.

Freshman wideout Calvin Green led all players with eight catches for 101 yards while redshirt-senior wide receiver Vince Mayle led the Crimson team with six catches for 92 yards and one 37-yard touchdown. Redshirt-junior wideout Drew Loftus also caught two touchdowns. Redshirt-freshman running back Jamal Morrow rushed for 44 yards and redshirt-freshman running back Gerard Wicks added two touchdowns on the ground.

Redshirt-freshman linebacker Peyton Pelluer made a game-high eight tackles for the Crimson team and redshirt-sophomore safety David Bucannon added seven for the Gray team. The defenses combined for 10 sacks and five interceptions led by sophomore cornerback Daquawn Brown’s two for the gray team.

Redshirt-freshman kicker Erik Powell opened the scoring with a 40-yard field goal and Halliday followed with a two-yard touchdown pass to Loftus. Midway through the second quarter, Halliday went up top to Mayle for a 37-yard touchdown who had got behind the defense. Falk put the Gray team on the board with a short one-yard touchdown pass to redshirt-senior wideout Rickey Galvin. Late in the half, Halliday found Loftus in traffic for a 22-yard score. In the second half, Wicks scored the only two touchdowns, rushing for four-yard and one-yard scores.
