Cordeiro, Parson help Hawaii hold off Colorado St. 50-45

Nov 20, 2021, 9:53 AM | Updated: 11:55 pm

HONOLULU (AP) — Chevan Cordeiro passed for two touchdowns and ran for another, Dedrick Parson scored on runs of 10 and 37 yards in the fourth quarter and Hawaii held on to beat Colorado State 50-45 on Saturday night and snap a three-game skid.

Cordeiro completed 23 of 41 passes for 406 yards and Parson finished with 11 carries for 78 yards Hawaii (5-7, 2-5 Mountain West Conference).

Cordeiro scored on a 15-yard run to give Hawaii (4-7, 1-5) the lead for good early in the second quarter. About six minutes later, he was flushed from the pocket and, as he rolled to his left, lofted a pass from the end zone to Zion Bowens at the 30 who raced untouched down the left sideline for a 93-yard touchdown — the second-longest pass play in program history — and after Cameron Lockridge returned an interception 40 yards for a TD just before halftime, Cordeiro hit Nick Mardner at the goal line for a 42-yard score to make it 36-10 with 9:35 left in the third quarter.

Todd Centeio hit Gary Williams for a 3-yard touchdown about four minutes later and connected with Cam Butler for a 24-yard touchdown early in the fourth quarter before David Bailey scored on a 34-yard run to trim Colorado State’s deficit to 36-31 with 7:04 to play.

Centeio finished 29-of-48 passing for 527 and five touchdowns for Colorado State (3-8, 2-5).

Lockridge recovered an onside kick for Hawaii with 17 seconds left to seal it.
