Meskell’s field goal ends 5 OT thriller for Hawaii, 44-41
Bryce Crawford attempted to answer for San Jose State, playing at home for the first time since August 30, but missed wide right from 47 yards.
The Rainbow Warriors (5-1, 2-0 Mountain West Conference) trailed 31-24 late in regulation, but engineered a 12-play, 75-yard drive with Cole McDonald finding John Ursua for the tying TD. Ursua caught 13 passes for 148 yards and three scores — the first time he had three touchdown receptions in a game.
Hawaii opened the overtime with Dayton Furuta carrying the ball on five of six plays and scoring from the 1.
San Jose State (0-4, 0-2) matched the TD, but then Crawford and Meskell each missed two field goal attempts before Crawford hit from 20 for a 41-38 Spartans lead. Meskell made two in a row from 35 for the win.
