Recap: Colorado State vs. Hawaii

Fort Collins, CO (Sports Network) - Chris Nwoke rushed for 115 yards and the Colorado State defense returned two interceptions for touchdowns in the fourth quarter as the Rams defeated the Hawaii Rainbow Warriors, 42-27, in a Mountain West Conference bout at Hughes Stadium.

Nwoke recorded two touchdowns, one rushing and one receiving, for CSU (2-6, 1-3 MWC), which snapped a six-game losing streak. Connor Smith completed 10- of-17 passes for 115 yards with a touchdown and two interceptions for the Rams.

For Hawaii (1-6, 0-4), Joey Iosefa (22 carries, 106 yards) and Will Gregory (16 carries, 84 yards) both had solid games rushing the ball. Sean Schroeder threw for 200 yards and had two touchdowns (one passing, one rushing), but he completed just 19-of-46 passes and threw three interceptions.

The Warriors struck first with a defensive touchdown early in the first quarter when Jerrol Garcia-Williams recovered a Nwoke fumble and returned it 12 yards for a score.

Nwoke redeemed himself two minutes later, catching a 27-yard touchdown pass from Smith to tie the score up at 7-7.

Hawaii regained the lead later in the quarter on an eight-yard touchdown pass from Schroeder to Chris Gant.

CSU opened the second quarter up with a pair of scores less than two minutes apart. First Nwoke rushed in a seven-yard touchdown run, then, following a 76- yard punt return by Joe Hansley, James Skelton scored on a five-yard touchdown rush to put the Rams up, 21-14.

A Tommey Morris one-yard scoring run later in the quarter gave the Rams their third unanswered touchdown. The Warriors halted the run less than two minutes later as Schroeder scored on a one-yard touchdown run, making Hawaii's deficit seven, 28-21, with less than five minutes to play in the first half.

Tyler Hadden connected on a 26-yard field goal midway through the third quarter for Hawaii, and he added another one less than three minutes later (43 yards) to make it just a one-point game.

The Warriors drove deep into CSU territory early in the fourth quarter looking to take the lead, but in a huge momentum swing, DeAndre Elliot intercepted a Schroeder pass and returned it 76 yards for a touchdown to make it 35-27 in favor of the Rams.

Schroeder found himself in a similar situation towards the end of the fourth quarter, driving down the field with the hope of tying the game, but he tossed another pick-six, this time to Jasen Oden (60 yards), as CSU put the game away.

Hawaii lost despite outgaining the Rams, 393 yards to 291, and controlling the ball for more than 36 minutes.
