Hawaii beats Houston 28-14 in New Mexico Bowl — in Texas

No. 24 Houston

FRISCO, Texas (AP) — Chevan Cordeiro threw three first-half touchdown passes and Calvin Turner had two long scoring plays to help Hawaii beat Houston 28-14 on Thursday in the New Mexico Bowl. The game was moved to Frisco from its usual location in Albuquerque because of COVID-19 restrictions in New Mexico. Hawaii gave first-year coach Todd Graham his 100th career victory. At 5-4, the Rainbow Warriors had a winning record for the third season in a row, the first time they’ve done that since 2001-04. Houston finished 3-5.
