I assume you saw this from PFF.

Colorado secondary has a chance to slow down Luke Falk
We’ve highlighted Washington State quarterback Luke Falk (81.3) several times this season, and with good reason. He currently leads all Power-5 quarterbacks with an 80.5 adjusted completion percentage, ranks fourth with a 126.4 rating on deep throws and is completing a ridiculous 73.2 percent of his pass attempts. All that being said, the Colorado secondary may be just the ones to finally slow him down this weekend. As a unit, the Buffaloes defense ranks second in the country in pass coverage grade and has a number of talented players on the back end. Cornerbacks Chidobe Awuzie (85.2) and Ahkello Witherspoon (85.9) rank among the nation’s top coverage corners and have gotten their hands on the ball a combined 14 times this season (12 pass breakups and two interceptions). Safety Tedric Thompson has also been a standout, allowing just a 34.5 QB rating into his coverage and ranking fourth among all safeties with his 88.4 coverage grade. It won’t be easy, but this Colorado secondary might have what it takes to contain Luke Falk and one of the nation’s most potent passing attacks.
