[ AD HAS BEEN REMOVED FROM THIS STORY ]

1. STAND I

» Situation: Hawaii 0, Colorado 0, 11:36 remaining, first quarter, Hawaii ball fourth and goal at Colorado 1
» The Play: QB Bryant Moniz fumbles the snap from C Bronson Tiwanak. S Anthony Perkins recovers at the 2.
» Impact: Hawaii failed to score after Moniz and SB Kealoha Pilares combined on an 80-yard play on the second snap from scrimmage that put the ball on the Colorado 3.
» Moniz: "A miscommunication with me and the center, while I was trying to call the play, he ended up snapping the ball. The noise from the end zone (stands) was a factor."

 

2. STAND II

» Situation: Hawaii 0, Colorado 0, 5:51 remaining, first quarter, Hawaii ball fourth and goal at Colorado 3
» The Play: K Scott Enos attempted field goal from 20 yards is no good.
» Impact: A fumbled punt, above, recovered by Po’okela Ahmad at the Colorado 3 goes to waste, as Hawaii again fails to score from close range in four downs.
» Hawaii offensive coordinator Nick Rolovich: "I don’t think we can let opportunities get away. That’s the fatigue: knowing we left 14 points right there. That starts to wear on you when things start to get close."

 

3. FLAGGED

» Situation: Hawaii 10, Colorado 0, 13:32 remaining, third quarter, Colorado ball third and 3 at own 27
» The Play: Hawaii is called for a 5-yard illegal substitution penalty as it has too many players on the field.
» Impact: Colorado drives 80 yards on 14 plays to open the second half with a touchdown and close to within a field goal of Hawaii’s lead.
» Hawaii coach Greg McMackin: "We had to hold them the first drive and not give them any momentum."

 

4. SAFETY

» Situation: Hawaii 10, Colorado 7, 10:33 remaining, third quarter, Hawaii ball third and 9 at own 10
» The Play: Under heavy pressure in the end zone, Moniz dumps the ball to RB Alex Green, who is also in the end zone. Green catches the ball but is swarmed for a safety.
» Impact: Another Hawaii mistake keeps Colorado’s momentum going. After the ensuing free kick, Colorado puts together another long drive, with Rodney Stewart going the final 5 yards through a huge hole, giving Colorado its first lead, which it would keep. Colorado’s no-huddle offense and playing at high altitude put pressure on Hawaii.
» Colorado coach Dan Hawkins: "They were breathing (hard), and our guys wanted to throw a rock on the gas pedal and get going."

 

5. SCRAMBLE

» Situation: Colorado 17, Hawaii 13, 9:32 remaining, fourth quarter, Colorado ball third and 8 at own 27
» The Play: QB Tyler Hansen scrambles and finally finds WR Toney Clemons open behind the Hawaii defense. Clemons goes all the way for a 73-yard touchdown.
» Impact: The clutch play by Colorado’s offense severely weakens Hawaii’s chance of regaining the momentum and turns it into a two-score game with time increasing as a factor. Hawaii never sacked Hansen, who completed 19 of 26 passes for 200 yards and two touchdowns.
» McMackin: "We knew we had to contain the quarterback all week and we didn’t contain him, and they threw the touchdown pass that put it out of reach."
