Bills to get an up-close look at two top college quarterback prospects

Two of college football's top quarterbacks meet Friday night when Southern Cal's Sam Darnold visits Washington State's Luke Falk in a Pac-12 matchup (10:30 p.m., ESPN).

The Buffalo Bills are one of 16 teams scheduled to be in attendance, according to

Darnold, a redshirt sophomore, has led the No. 5 Trojans to a 4-0 start. He is averaging 306.2 passing yards per game, completing 98 of 136 passes (67.1 percent) for nine touchdowns and seven interceptions. Darnold remains the favorite to be the No. 1 overall pick, should he declare for the draft. He'll face a good test in Washington State, which ranks No. 1 in the Pac-12 in passing defense, allowing just 142.2 yards per game.

Falk, a senior, has gone 73 of 96 for 874 yards and 11 touchdowns since being benched against Boise State in the Cougars' second game of the season. Washington State is also 4-0 and ranked 16th in the country. Playing against inferior competition to this point, Falk has put up video game numbers: 130 of 169, 1,378 yards, 14 touchdowns and one interception.
