McDonald's 3 TD passes help Hawaii beat Army 52-31


HONOLULU (AP) — Cole McDonald came off the bench to pass for 250 yards and three touchdowns and Hawaii rallied to a 52-31 win over Army on Saturday night.


McDonald, who missed a few practices earlier in the week due to flu-like symptoms, entered the game late in the second quarter after an injury to starting quarterback Chevan Cordeiro and finished 19-of-29 passing without an interception.


Miles Reed carried 10 times for 92 yards and scored on a 1-yard run to cap Hawaii’s opening possession of the second half.


Five plays after its defense forced a Hawaii punt, Hopkins was pressured as he dropped back on third-and-14 and his pass was picked off by linebacker Solomon Matautia, who returned it to the Army 25-yard line.


On the very next play, Cordeiro hit Byrd for the touchdown and Ryan Meskell knocked through the extra point to tie it at 17 with 8:08 remaining until halftime.


Cornerback Rojesterman Farris II jumped a Jones’ pass near the sideline before taking it back for a 100-yard interception return for touchdown to close out the scoring with 1:34 left to play.
