The big news coming into the game was that UNLV QB Mark Clayton was going to start after he suffered and injury last week against Oregon State.  This game was an aerial attack that featured 965 total yards with 817 in the passing game.

UNLV QB Omar Clayton did a good job in his return with possibly his best game of his career with 340 yards, three scores, but two picks.  All-everything WR Ryan Wolfe was stellar with 130 yards, but touchdown maker Phill Payne had 94 yards and two touchdowns.  The running game was nothing special with Channing Trotter who manged 68 yards.


Hawai'i threw even more as Greg Alexander who had 477 yards and three receivers had over 100 yards, but the running game was nill as they had only 28 total yards. 

This game was one of those back and forth affairs with little punting and a couple of picks.  The game was basically one of those games that whoever had the ball last was going to win.  Hawaii scored with just over five minutes, but that was too much as Omar Clayton drove down the field for the game winning score.

These types of drives are what UNLV was known to give up those late drives, but it seems that UNLV -at least offensively-- is able to keep pace with most teams and will cause trouble once conference season begins.
