Brigham Young Holds Off Hawaii

September 07, 2002|From Times Wire Services

Bret Engemann completed 21 of 47 passes for 226 yards and Marcus Whalen ran for 141 yards and two scores as Brigham Young defeated Hawaii, 35-32, Friday night at Provo, Utah.

The victory avenged the Cougars' 72-45 loss last season at Honolulu that spoiled BYU's 12-0 start.

The Cougars (2-0), who trailed, 17-14, at halftime, pulled away in the third quarter when Hawaii (1-1) stalled offensively, then had to hold off a charge by the Warriors.

"A win is good, I'm telling you," Cougar Coach Gary Crowton said. "I don't care if it's one point or 50."

Hawaii quarterback Timmy Chang was 20 of 52 for 275 yards but was intercepted four times.


Linebacker Eddie Strong, Mississippi's leading tackler last season, isn't expected to play today against Memphis because of a sprained left ankle.... Brett Basanez is Northwestern's new starting quarterback for today's home opener against Texas Christian. He replaces Tony Stauss.
