Hawai'i Ran An Incredible Fake Punt And Won Their First Bowl Game In Ten Years

There hasn’t been much to cheer about for Rainbow Warriors fans over the past few years, but Hawai’i beat MTSU in last night’s Hawai’i Bowl thanks in part to a wild third-quarter fake punt that was as much a victory for long snapping as it was playcalling.

Noah Borden’s 22-yard, diagonal long snap found a distant Makoa Camanse-Stevens, who connected with Ammon Barker for the first down. The Rainbow Warriors went home—which, well, they were already playing in their home stadium, but whatever—with a 52-35 win over the Blue Raiders.
