HONOLULU, Dec. 25 (UPI) -- The University of Hawaii Warriors defeated Arizona State, 41-24, in the Hawaii Bowl, ending a record season for Hawaii quarterback Colt Brennan.
Brennan threw for five scores, bringing his season total to 58, beating the 1990 record set by Houston's David Klingler.
Jason Rivers caught 14 balls for a school-record 308 yards for the Warriors (11-3), who were playing at home in the Hawaii Bowl for the fourth time in five seasons. They've won three of those games, beating Houston in 2003 and UAB in 2004, while losing to Tulane in 2002.
Nate Ilaoa had 97 bruising yards on 18 carries for Hawaii, which equaled the school record for most wins in a season, set in 1992.
Ryan Torain ran for 160 yards and a score for the Sun Devils (7-6), who were playing their last game under head coach Dirk Koetter. He was fired last month, with former Idaho coach Dennis Erickson taking over the reins going into next season.
