Washington State has questions at QB

SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) After years of enjoying the record-setting exploits of quarterback Luke Falk, Washington State faces big questions looking toward next season.

Coach Mike Leach was far from expansive about what he saw from the starters, juniors Trey Tinsley and Anthony Gordon.
