1. Scoop and score

Situation: Hawaii 0, Colorado State 0, 10:46 remaining, first quarter, Colorado State ball second and 10 at own 12

The Play: S Marrell Jackson meets RB Chris Nwoke at the line of scrimmage on a stretch play. Jackson knocks the ball loose and it is picked up by LB Jerrol Garcia-Williams, who runs it into the end zone.

Impact: Hawaii forces a turnover for the first time in three games and takes a lead for just the second time this season. Jackson finishes with two forced fumbles, a blocked punt and a team-high nine tackles.

Jackson: "I saw how he was holding it and went for the ball. My eyes just led me to the ball."

2. Dead Zone

Situation: Colorado State 28, Hawaii 21, 10:05 remaining, third quarter, Hawaii ball third and 1 at Colorado State 2

The Play: RB John Lister rushes for no gain, stopped by DB Conner Roggy.

Impact: Hawaii then failed to convert on fourth down, as QB Sean Schroder passed incomplete for WR Billy Ray Stutzmann. The Warriors produced no points despite starting on the 20 after another Nwoke fumble.

Lister: "It was really frustrating. When they hand you the ball on their porch, you have to take it in."

3. Reversed

Situation: Colorado State 28, Hawaii 24, 5:25 remaining, third quarter, Hawaii ball first and 10 at Colorado State 20

The Play: An official signals a touchdown as Stutzmann appears to catch a pass in the end zone from Schroeder. But after replay review the play is overturned and ruled incomplete.

Impact: Hawaii was stopped and forced to settle for a field goal, this time after getting the ball on the Colorado State 35.

Hawaii coach Norm Chow: "It was awful. It was terrible. That's what cost us the ballgame. ... We don't take advantage. We don't capitalize, and when we did, (the officials) called it back, which I knew they would."

4. Pick Six

Situation: Colorado State 28, Hawaii 27, 14:48 remaining, fourth quarter, Hawaii ball second and 10 at Colorado State 28

The Play: CB DeAndre Elliott intercepts Schroeder's pass and returns it 76 yards for a touchdown.

Impact: Hawaii was moving the ball well and appeared to be on its way to regaining the lead. But this final shift in momentum put Colorado State back in control. Both teams finished with five turnovers.

Schroeder: "I checked the play. It was a bad check. It was my fault. I take full responsibility."

5. Dagger

Situation: Colorado State 35, Hawaii 27, 1:24 remaining, fourth quarter, Hawaii ball fourth and 13 at own 23

The Play: CB Jasen Oden intercepts Schroeder's pass and returns it 40 yards for Colorado State's second touchdown off an interception.

Impact: The play sealed Colorado State's (2-6) first Mountain West Conference win of the season and first victory after six consecutive losses. Hawaii (1-6) fell to its fifth loss in a row and remains winless in the MWC.

Colorado State quarterback Conner Smith: "We knew it was Hawaii and we had a good shot against them."

"Football: Five big plays from Hawaii's 35-23 loss to New Mexico" - that definitely threw me off. Thought I was reading the wrong paper.

Conner Smith's comment says it all. We are perceived (rightfully so) as a "gimme" on everyone's schedule. Hawaii football has hit rock bottom. Coach Chow, there is a difference between discipline, doing things a certain way, and stubbornness, inflexibility or doing things just one way (right or wrong) and I don't think you know what it is.

very true..CSU let most of their best players go due to academic problems. (JJ nevere cared about that kind of thing) and the students there do not care about the team or its very weak division. UH should be totally ashamed of their embarrassing performance

Alfred/Alber/Allie aka *dude pretending to be a girl* Fact is that CSU is thinking about building it's own FOOTBALL stadium per the Denver Post (6/17/12). As for letting most of it's talented players go for academic problems, they expelled 4 players for their part in an off campus brawl (AP 5/7/12). The students there DO care about their football program in a "weak division" or the stadium wouldn't be an issue. You're constantly getting caught making false statements and/or quoting false sources yet you continue. You're obviously not very bright as you keep laying down lie after lie and using false sources as your "proof". Most 13-14 year olds know enough to get their facts straight before turning in their homework it's just what intelligent kids do. These traits you constantly display show you clearly lack the ability to pass a high school Expository writing class. You're obviously under-educated in addition to being extremely lazy. Do yourself a favor, go back to school and get your GED, you MIGHT learn to converse and correspond intelligently. As for your obvious laziness...I don't know, maybe multiple shots of 5 hour energy might help?

1 Hit the nail on the head. Opposing teams QB's will be saying the same thing the rest of the way-Fresno (Hawai'i is 34 point underdogs), Boise (probably 50 if Vegas goes that high), AFA killed Nevada (600 yards offense against our D?), UNLV should beat us by 14-21 and even S. Bama should be favored. They played LA Monroe all 4 Qtrs before bowing. It's really ugly folks and Chow better find a solution-that's what he gets paid for.
