Washington Falls Victim To Furious Hawaii Comeback, 35-28
Dec. 2, 2007
HONOLULU (AP) -- Colt Brennan threw a 5-yard touchdown pass to Ryan Grice-Mullen with 44 seconds left and No. 11 Hawaii overcame a 21-point deficit to beat Washington 35-28 on Saturday night to finish the regular season 12-0 and virtually assure a BCS berth.
Brennan was near perfect with a Heisman Trophy night, throwing two fourth-quarter touchdown passes. He was 42-of-50, including 6-of-6 on the winning 76-yard drive.
He threw for 442 yards and five TDs with no interceptions.
Grice-Mullen caught a slant pass from Brennan for the score that put the sellout crowd in a frenzy, chanting 'BCS! BCS!'
Washington took over with 38 seconds and drove all the way to the Hawaii 4, but Jake Locker's pass was intercepted by Ryan Mouton in the end zone, sealing the win and the Warriors' perfect season.
Thousands of fans charged the field and flashes sparkled in Hawaii's biggest win in school history.
