MOSCOW, Idaho (HawaiiNewsNow) – A missed 53 yard field goal by Idaho kicker Trey Farquhar allowed the Warrior football team (5-3, 3-1 WAC) to escape with a 16-14 win over the Vandals.

Hawaii's special teams, the topic of conversation for lack of productivity the last few weeks, came up big, converting all three FG attempts, including the go-ahead 35 yarder by senior Kenton Chun with 34 seconds remaining in the fourth quarter.

Bryant Moniz threw for 338 yards, a touchdown and interception, while Royce Pollard hauled in 10 receptions for 151 yards.

Receiver Billy Ray Stutzmann added 8 receptions for 73 yards and Hawaii's only touchdown, a 2 yarder in the 2nd quarter that gave UH a 13-7 lead at the half.

Hawaii returns to Aloha Stadium Saturday, November 5th, when they host Utah State.
