Muema runs for 163 yards to give San Diego St. the 28-21 overtime win over Hawaii
HONOLULU – Adam Muema rushed for 163 yards and the go-ahead 2-yard touchdown in overtime as San Diego State rallied to beat Hawaii 28-21 Saturday.
The Aztecs (6-4, 5-1 Mountain West) trailed 21-14 with 9:42 left in the game following a Hawaii touchdown, but tied it with 2:34 to play in regulation on a 14-yard touchdown run by Chad Young and the ensuing extra point by Seamus McMorrow.
The Rainbow Warriors (0-10, 0-7 MWC) had a chance to win it on the final play of the fourth quarter, but Taylor Graham's deep ball fell incomplete and the teams went into overtime.
San Diego State started the extra period on offense and needed just three plays — all runs by Muema — to score. Hawaii gave up a second-down sack on its ensuing drive, followed by a pair of incomplete passes to end the game.
