- McDonald finds Ward on a slant for six. Hawaii trails 33-22 after the two-point conversion.

4TH QUARTER: 3:23

- McDonald’s pass to Ursua in the end zone is incomplete, but there’s a flag on the play. Holding on Nevada’s defense, automatic first down for UH.

4TH QUARTER: 4:24

- McDonald is scanning the field and then tucking the ball when he gets the chance. He’s taking whatever the defense is giving him.

4TH QUARTER: 6:32

- McDonald is back in after not playing the last drive and seems to have a little pep in his step this drive.

4TH QUARTER: 7:11

- Nevada puts in its backup quarterback and doesn’t get much on this drive. Hawaii ball coming up after a short punt.

4TH QUARTER: 7:58

- Another Nevada touchdown is wiped off the board due to a holding call. Lucky break for UH.

4TH QUARTER: 9:17

HAWAII TURNOVER ON DOWNS!

- After a nice gain on third, Hawaii goes for it on fourth down again but Furuta can’t get to the first down mark. Turnover on downs.

4TH QUARTER: 10:29

- Chevan Cordeiro is in at quarterback, but is sacked on his first play for a loss of four yards.

4TH QUARTER: 10:33

- Slowly but surely, Nevada is starting run the clock out and gaining first downs running the ball. Not a good sign for UH.

END OF THIRD QUARTER: NEVADA 26-14 HAWAII

3RD QUARTER: 0:00

HAWAII TURNOVER ON DOWNS!

- For the second time in a row in the red zone, Hawaii turns the ball over on downs. McDonald can’t find anyone open on fourth down and once again, Nevada gets the ball back. The Warrior defense and special teams is doing its best to stay in the game, but the offense needs to step it up in the fourth.

3RD QUARTER: 0:06

- Don’t understand why McDonald didn’t run the ball on third down to pick up a few yards. Would make this fourth down attempt a lot easier to convert.

HAWA

3RD QUARTER: 1:44

NEVADA TURNOVER!

- HOLD ON JUST ONE MINUTE! Hawaii’s special teams forces a fumble on the return and its Warriors ball in the red zone!

3RD QUARTER: 1:44

- That drive only took 13 seconds, and not for a good reason. Three-straight incompletions result in a Hawaii punt. Nevada ball coming up.

3RD QUARTER: 1:57

NEVADA MISSED FIELD GOAL!

- That wasn’t even close! Ahmed’s 57-yard attempt is no good and Hawaii is given the ball at midfield.

3RD QUARTER: 2:35

- What an effort by the Warriors defense to force a fourth down at midfield. Let’s see what Nevada tries to do here.

3RD QUARTER: 3:58

- Good news and bad news. The good news: Nevada’s big play that resulted in a touchdown is wiped off the board due to an illegal block in the back. The bad news: That was way too easy for Nevada.

3RD QUARTER: 4:25

HAWAII TURNOVER ON DOWNS!

- McDonald’s pass to Ursua is incomplete. Nevada gets the ball back on its own goal line.

3RD QUARTER: 4:30

- Two-straight runs by Furuta ends up with nothing. It’s fourth and goal, and Hawaii needs to get something here to keep this game close.

3RD QUARTER: 6:47

- Great catch by Ward on the sidelines to put Hawaii in the red zone. Pass goes for 30 yards, and now McDonald has his eyes on the end zone.

3RD QUARTER: 7:44

- McDonald finds Armstrong-Brown for a gain of 14 yards and a first down.

3RD QUARTER: 8:48

- Reed rushes for 11 yards to move the chains.

3RD QUARTER: 9:18

NEVADA TOUCHDOWN!

- That was too easy for the Wolf Pack. A simple screen pass to Elijah Cooks results in a 40-yard scamper for a score. He wasn’t even touched. Nevada tries for two after the touchdown but don’t get it. Nevada leads 26-14.

3RD QUARTER: 9:47

- Big holding call brings the ball back for Nevada. But regardless, the Wolf Pack offense is able to move the ball with relative ease out there. Hawaii is missing Tavai’s tackling ability.

3RD QUARTER: 12:33

- Well, the drive started well at least. Hawaii can’t find another way to move the chains and are forced to punt. Nevada gets the ball next.

3RD QUARTER: 14:14

- Good start to the drive. Furuta runs forward for five yards and picks up the first down to move the chains.

3RD QUARTER: 15:00

- The Warriors will start the second half on offense. Let’s see if they can start off on the right foot.

HALFTIME: NEVADA 20-14 HAWAII

2ND QUARTER: 1:16

NEVADA TURNOVER!

- WOW! WHAT A PLAY BY HUDSON-RASUMUSSEN! He strips the ball and the Warriors recover. No late first half score for Nevada as Hawaii takes over, looking to put some points on the board before the third quarter.

2ND QUARTER: 2:10

- McDonald is sacked on third down and Nevada calls a timeout. Not a great drive by Hawaii’s offense to give its defense a break.

2ND QUARTER: 3:33

- Byrd drops another ball on what could’ve been an easy first down. Third down coming up.

2ND QUARTER: 3:31

- Wow. Tough break for Hawaii. Warriors think they force a fumble on a strip sack, which is returned for a touchdown by Jahlani Tavai who was injured on the play. However, upon review, the call was reversed. Fourth down for Nevada as Tavai jogs off the field with his right arm seemingly limp on his side.

- Nevada punts. Hawaii ball.

2ND QUARTER: 5:37

- McDonald can’t find Ward on third down and the 'Bows are forced to punt. Nevada ball, looking to open up this lead.

2ND QUARTER: 5:41

- A critical drop by JoJo Ward makes it third and long for Hawaii.

2ND QUARTER: 6:24

NEVADA TOUCHDOWN!

- And just like that, Hawaii’s lead is gone. A Devonte Lee five-yard run goes into the end zone and the Wolf Pack takes a 20-14 lead after the PAT.

2ND QUARTER: 6:45

- Nevada quickly enters the red zone after just a couple of plays and is threatening to score.

2ND QUARTER: 8:30

HAWAII TURNOVER ON DOWNS!

- McDonald’s pass on fourth down is incomplete and their is also an offensive pass interference penalty to rub it in. First down for Nevada.

2ND QUARTER: 8:34

- It’s fourth and short here after the Sharsh drop, and it looks like Hawaii is going for it...to the surprise of no one. Hawaii fans love it when Rolovich shows confidence in his offense.

2ND QUARTER: 9:57

- FRUUUUUUUUIT! Furuta just knows how to punish defenders when they try to bring him down with three-straight punishing runs.

2ND QUARTER: 11:00

NEVADA FIELD GOAL!

The Wolf Pack hits a 37-yard field goal to reduce the deficit to one point. Hawaii still leads 14-13 in the second quarter.

2ND QUARTER: 11:40

- INCOMPLETE! Hawaii’s defense forces the errant throw and its fourth down for Nevada.

2ND QUARTER: 11:48

- A great tackle by Scott results in no gain. It’s third down.

2ND QUARTER: 13:06

- Nevada is stopped short of the first down but they go for it on fourth and convert the short yardage. First and goal for Nevada.

2ND QUARTER: 13:09

- Nevada is the red zone. On second and short, an incomplete pass forces third down.

2ND QUARTER: 15:00

Apoligies for the late start to the live blog Warrior fans. We’re picking things up in the second quarter as Hawaii just took the lead on a beautiful Cole McDonald throw to John Ursua for a 70-yard score. Hawaii leads 14-0.
