HONOLULU (AP) - Bryant Moniz threw three touchdowns, Mana Silva intercepted a late pass and Hawaii held on to upset No. 19 Nevada 27-21 on Saturday night.

The victory, which spoiled the Wolf Pack's perfect season, was the fourth straight for the surging Warriors (5-2, 3-0 Western Athletic Conference), the top challenger to powerhouse Boise State for the WAC title.

Moniz tossed two scoring passes to Kealoha Pilares in the first quarter and zipped an 11-yard TD strike to Royce Pollard with 5½ minutes left.

But Nevada answered with its own score to pull within six and recovered the onside kick.

With Nevada driving and the clock winding down, Colin Kapernick's pass was tipped into the hands of Silva to seal Hawaii's win.

Nevada (6-1, 1-1) fell to 0-6 at Aloha Stadium and hasn't won in Honolulu since 1948. Its last loss also came at the 2009 Hawaii Bowl.
