HONOLULU -- Chevan Cordeiro accounted for five touchdowns, including two in the fourth quarter, and Hawaii held on for a 42-40 win over San Jose State on Saturday night.
Cordeiro was 23-of-31 passing for 309 yards and three touchdowns with no interceptions and added 11 carries for 55 yards and two scores. Miles Reed had 124 yards rushing and a TD on 17 carries and JoJo Ward finished with seven receptions for 170 yards and two touchdowns for Hawaii (6-4, 3-3 Mountain West).
San Jose State's 16-play, 67-yard drive stalled and the Spartans (4-6, 1-5) settled for a 28-yard field goal by Matt Mercurio that trimmed their deficit to 28-26 going into the fourth quarter. Cordeiro hit Jared Smart for a 5-yard touchdown to give Hawaii a nine-point lead with 12 minutes to go and, after Josh Love connected with Bailey Gaither for a 40-yard TD about 2 1/2 minutes later, Cordeiro's 2-yard scoring run capped a 12-play, 85-yard drive to make it 42-33 with 4:23 remaining.
Love hit Isaiah Ward for a 19-yard touchdown to bring San Jose State within two with 1:51 to go but Cordeiro's 4-yard run on third-and-2 allowed the Rainbow Warriors to bleed the clock.
