UNLV 34, Hawaii 33

Frustrating and oh-so-close. Both teams fought hard and this could've easily gone the other way, but in the end UH could not contain UNLV's offense. Hope there's a lot to learn from this game, including having a plan to go for one or two before scoring a touchdown. Sorry, I just had to mention it. Seeing practically every UH fan in the stadium holding up two fingers and screaming for the two-point conversion after UH took a 33-28 lead is seared into my brain. Lots more reflection tomorrow, but here's a post-game summary, box score, notes and quotes from HawaiiAthletics.com
For the second straight game the Warrior offense was on full cylinder. UH piled up more than 500 yards of total offense with Greg Alexander passing for a career-high 477 yards and three touchdowns. It was the second straight game the senior threw for more than 400 yards.

Three different receivers caught for more than 100 yards—Rodney Bradley (189), Kealoha Pilares (146) and Greg Salas (104). Pilares snared 13 catches to become one of just five players in school history to reach that mark.
And here summaries from the Advertiser and Star-Bulletin.

UPDATE: Just to clarify, the coaches were trying to call a timeout after the kicking team was out on the field ready to kick the extra point after UH took a 26-21 lead in the fourth quarter. That's why all the UH fans were screaming and holding up two fingers after UH took a 33-28 lead.
