University of Hawaii quarterback Jeremy Higgins will miss the remainder of the season with a fracture in his (left) throwing hand he suffered in the fourth quarter of Saturday’s game at Colorado.

“It’s really a tough deal and we feel really badly for Jeremy,” head coach Norm Chow said. “He’s the consummate teammate and team leader who worked really hard in his career to get where he’s at. It’s very unfortunate but Jeremy will still be around the team, serving as a student assistant. He wants to get into coaching and this will be a good start for his career.”

Higgins replaced starter Ikaika Woolsey to start the second half against the Buffaloes. He finished the game 4-for-17 for 66 yards. Over his three-year career at UH, he appeared in nine games, with one start, and completed 41-of-82 attempts for 489 yards and one touchdown. He also rushed for one touchdown in 2012.

A 2010 graduate of Saint Louis School in Honolulu, Higgins attended Utah State for one year and appeared briefly in two games as a true freshman before transferring to UH.
