Hawaii rallies to beat Middle Tennessee 52-35 in Hawaii Bowl
HONOLULU - Dru Brown threw for 274 yards and four touchdowns and Hawaii overcame an early deficit to beat Middle Tennessee 52-35 in the Hawaii Bowl on Saturday night.
The Rainbow Warriors (7-7) amassed 500 yards of total offense and their highest-scoring output this season to end the year on a three-game winning streak.
Brown completed 20 of 30 passes without an interception. He had a 2-yard touchdown run and was sacked just once. Brown has nine touchdowns to zero interceptions in his last two games.
"I think the offensive line played a solid role in that," Brown said. "They played really well the last two games and really all year. Most of the time when the offense isn't working it's my fault. I still think I made some mistakes today, (but) they just weren't magnified. The receivers played great and the coaches called great plays." | More... |
