LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) — Chevan Cordeiro threw for three touchdowns and ran for another as the University of Hawaii football team kept its slim bowl hopes alive with a regular season-ending 38-14 victory over Wyoming on Saturday.

Cordeiro completed 19 of 31 passes for 323 yards with one interception. He was the game’s leading rusher with 86 yards on 14 carries as the Rainbow Warriors won in Laramie for the first time since 1991, ending a six-game losing streak. UH also snapped a five-game losing streak in Mountain West Conference road games.

Calvin Turner Jr. caught five passes for 90 yards and Steven Fiso had two TD receptions for the Warriors (6-7, 3-5 Mountain West).

Cordeiro threw all three of his TD passes in the first half. UH scored the game’s first 24 points, then Cordeiro hit Jared Smart for a 50-yard touchdown and a 31-7 halftime lead.

Wyoming fell to 6-6, 2-6.

While the win did not make the Rainbow Warriors bowl-eligible (.500 or better), it did keep open the possibility they could make a bowl if a few of the 83 bowl-eligible teams decline invitations. There 41 bowl games — not counting the CFP national championship game — meaning there are 82 spots available.
