Adam Muema rushed for 163 yards and the go-ahead 2-yard touchdown in overtime as San Diego State rallied to beat Hawaii 28-21 Saturday.

The Aztecs (6-4, 5-1 Mountain West) trailed 21-14 with 9:42 left in the game following a Hawaii touchdown, but tied it with 2:34 to play in regulation on a 14-yard touchdown run by Chad Young and the ensuing extra point by Seamus McMorrow.

The Rainbow Warriors (0-10, 0-7) had a chance to win it on the final play of the fourth quarter, but Taylor Graham's deep ball fell incomplete and the teams went into overtime.

San Diego State started the extra period on offense and needed just three plays - all runs by Muema - to score. Hawaii gave up a second-down sack on its ensuing drive, followed by a pair of incomplete passes to end the game.

Muema carried 24 times and averaged 6.8 yards per rush. The Aztecs rushed for 234 yards, and quarterback Quinn Kahler completed 17 of 34 pass attempts for 265 yards with a touchdown to Colin Lockett, who finished with four grabs for 106 yards. Josh Gavert led the defensive effort with 11 tackles and one interception.

Late in the first quarter, Hawaii capitalized off a San Diego State special teams' miscue.

Scott Harding's rugby-style, end-over-end punt hit the Aztecs' David Lamar downfield and was recovered by the Rainbow Warriors' Jerrol Garcia-Williams at the SDSU 23-yard line.

Two plays later, Iosefa found the end zone from five yards out to score the game's first points. Tyler Hadden made the extra point to give Hawaii a 7-0 lead.

A Hawaii defensive error allowed San Diego State to tie up at 7-7 a few minutes later.

Tavita Woodard jumped offside to give the Aztecs a free play, which they took full advantage of. Kaehler hit Lockett along the right sideline for a 56-yard touchdown pass. Seamus McMorrow tacked on the PAT to cap the 64-yard drive with 8:40 left in the second quarter.

The Rainbow Warriors answered on their ensuing drive, which covered 65 yards in five plays, capped by Sean Schroeder's 31-yard touchdown pass to a wide-open Harold Moleni. Hadden's PAT gave Hawaii a 14-7 lead, which held until Donnel Pumphrey scored early in the third quarter on a 30-yard run.

Schroeder put Hawaii ahead for a third time with 9:42 left in the fourth quarter on his 8-yard scoring strike to Iosefa to culminate a 16-play, 86-yard drive that took 7:17 off the clock.

The Aztecs orchestrated an 8-play, 82-yard drive that resulted in Young's 14-yard, game-tying touchdown run in the final minutes of regulation.

Iosefa carried a school-record 37 times for 150 yards, and Schroeder passed for 194 yards on 18-of-36 passing while Brendan Daley made a team-high 11 tackles.

San Diego State leads the all-time series over Hawaii, 17-9-2. The Aztecs are now 6-2 all-time in overtime games while the Rainbow Warriors fell to 7-3 in the same department.
