LARAMIE, Wyo. — Brian Hill’s record-setting day helped keep Wyoming from setting a dubious team record.
Hill, a sophomore, rushed for 232 yards and a touchdown, breaking a 21-year-old school record for rushing yards in a single season with 1,631, and Cameron Coffman tossed three touchdown passes as the Cowboys beat UNLV to avoid a school-record 11th loss.
Wyoming (2-10, 2-6 MW) finishes the season with its worst record since 2002. Blake Decker threw for 270 yards and three TDs for UNLV (3-9, 2-6).
COLORADO ST. 34, FRESNO ST. 31

Hawaii hires Nevada OC as head coach
Athletic Director David Matlin announced the hiring of former Hawaii quarterback Nick Rolovich on Friday.
“He understands what it means to be a Warrior, having played and coached here and what affect a winning program has with this community,” Matlin said. “I have no doubt we picked the right man for this job. The future is bright for Hawai'i football.”
Rolovich played for the Warriors in 2000 and ’01 and coached under Greg McMackin from 2008-11. He was the team’s primary play-caller in his final three seasons as a Hawaii assistant. He joined the Nevada staff in in 2012 and has been offensive coordinator for four seasons under Brian Polian. Hawaii fired Norm Chow this month after he went 10-36 in four seasons.
