Hawaii's Dramatic Victory

To hell with NCAA sanctions. Should Hawaii end up in a Bowl Championship Game, it should cut Dan Kelly a check. The Warrior kicker nailed a 45-yard field goal with 11.7 seconds left Friday night — after two timeouts by Nevada coach Chris Ault — giving Hawaii a 28-26 victory over the Wolf Pack at Reno.

Had Kelly missed, Hawaii would have been eliminated from BCS consideration. Instead it remains one of two undefeated teams (Kansas being the other) in Division I-A.

Adding to the drama: Colt Brennan was in for only two plays after suffering a concussion last Saturday.

But Brennan will be back Friday when Hawaii plays host to Boise State in a game that likely will decide a berth to a BCS bowl.

Thanks to The Warriors Will Throw and UH Bows.

oh man, what a crazy game. dan "iceman" kelly had some pretty funny things to say about nevada's attempt to ice him. here's an article about it with the quotes. and here's a video:

it's a bunch of news clips, but the dan kelly stuff starts at 2:10 and again at 4:30. you can't ice the iceman!
