Honolulu - Dec. 24, 2005
Tickets | History | Bowls Schedule
Rod Gilmore The Hawaii bowl is consistently exciting, but always underrated. Last year UAB and Hawaii combined for 99 points. This year's game produced 97 points and overtime. UCF WR Brandon Marshall was simply amazing with 11 grabs for 200-plus yards and 3 TDs. Credit UCF for bouncing back from Nevada's devastating double tight end formation that led to the Wolf Pack's 10-point lead late in the game. But Nevada allowed the game to get to OT with a lackadaisical effort on UCF's onside kick with less than two minutes remaining. Nevada should have won the game in regulation instead of on a missed PAT in OT. -- Rod Gilmore
