San Jose State 20, Hawaii 17

Turnovers, penalties, turnovers, penalties, etc, etc. That was painful.

News links to follow.

UPDATE: Here's Stephen Tsai's post-game wrap-up.
For the Warriors (1-3 overall, 0-1 WAC), it all unraveled by their own hands — six turnovers, including five in the second half.

Three of them were parlayed into points — Jeff Clark's touchdown, and Strubeck's two field goals.

Strubeck had struggled this season, entering with five misses in eight attempts.

He missed his first attempt of the night, from 47 yards.

But he converted from 50 yards to tie it with 9:32 to play, then won it with a 47-yarder in the final two minutes.
UPDATE 2: Here's a press release game wrap-up from SJSUSpartans.com.
The defense turned up the pressure first on Hawaii starting quarterback Inoke Funaki who was effective in the first half mixing crafty footwork with timely pass completions for a 17-7 halftime lead. Funaki was 14-of-20 in the first half, but was just 2-of-7 for 15 yards befoer Tyler Graunke came in for the final two Hawaii possessions. Graunke was 5-of-9 and was sacked twice, once by Justin Cole and once by Jarron Gilbert.
And here's an AP wrap-up, via ESPN.

That's all the updates for tonight. What a tough loss. Six turnovers for UH. None for SJSU. Multiple personal foul penalties. And through it all, the defense kept us in the game. SJSU was held to 236 yards of offense and converted on only 4 of 17 third downs. This was just given away.
