HONOLULU – Marcus Kemp caught a 20-yard touchdown pass from Ikaika Woolsey with no time remaining to lift Hawaii to a 37-35 win over UNLV Saturday.
The Rainbow Warriors (4-8, 3-4 Mountain West) completed an unlikely comeback after allowing the Rebels (2-10, 1-6) to pull ahead, 35-31, with just 15 seconds to play.
Hawaii began its final drive from the UNLV 42-yard line. Woolsey completed a 22-yard pass to Donnie King on first down and two plays later — with just one second left on the game clock — Woolsey threw a pass toward the front left corner of the end zone and Kemp went up to snag it away from the defender.
UNLV scored the game's first 14 points before allowing Hawaii to reel off 24 consecutive points.
