Chang Getting Closer to Mark

From Associated Press

Timmy Chang threw for 318 yards and two touchdowns while moving closer to becoming the NCAA’s career passing yardage leader as Hawaii defeated San Jose State, 46-28, late Saturday night in Honolulu.

Britton Komine had nine catches for 159 yards and two touchdowns for the Warriors (3-3 overall, 3-2 in the Western Athletic Conference).

Chang, who was 25 for 39, could break the 13-year-old career passing mark this coming weekend at No. 19 Boise State.


The fifth-year senior from Honolulu needs 241 yards to surpass the NCAA record of 15,031 yards set by Brigham Young’s Ty Detmer from 1988 to ’91. Chang has thrown for 14,791 yards and 94 touchdowns in his career.

Tyson Thompson had 23 carries for 203 yards for the Spartans (2-4, 1-2).

Hawaii had 449 yards on offense and did not punt.


Tulsa running back Brandon Diles fumbled out of the end zone from the one-yard line in triple overtime to hand Nevada a 54-48 win Saturday night in Reno.

Nevada receiver Nichiren Flowers caught a 25-yard pass for the go-ahead touchdown.

Nevada improved to 4-4 and 2-2 in the Western Athletic Conference. Tulsa is 1-6 and 0-3.


Miami defensive tackle Santonio Thomas and right guard Tyler McMeans each might sit out the rest of the season because of knee injuries.

They were hurt in Miami’s 45-31 victory at North Carolina State on Saturday.
