UH lost a heartbreaker tonight. Leading 24-10 in the 4th quarter, with the defense playing an amazing game, Cincinnati mounted a crazy comeback to win it. Here’s a game summary from the Honolulu Advertiser, along with an excerpt:
Thirteenth-ranked Cincinnati scored 19 unanswered points in the fourth quarter to surge to a 29-24 victory over Hawai’i tonight at Aloha Stadium.
The Warriors had built a 24-10 lead in the fourth quarter.
But Brandon Underwood’s 20-yard interception return, Jake Rogers’ 44-yard field goal and a safety closed the Bearcats to 24-22.

Dustin Grutza, who replaced starter Tony Pike in the fourth quarter, then threw to Mardy Gilyard along the right sideline. Gilyard slipped a would-be tackler at the UH 35 and raced untouched to the end zone for a 29-24 lead with 4:42 to play.
