LAS VEGAS (AP) — Tim Cornett ran for an 80-yard touchdown and Phillip Payne caught two scoring passes to help UNLV shock a fumble-prone Hawaii 40-20 on Saturday night.

Cornett’s first-quarter run was the longest rushing score for the Rebels (1-2) in 22 years.

The Warriors (1-2), which were a 20½-point favorite, fumbled four times.

UNLV’s Caleb Herring was 17 of 29 passing for 178 yards and two touchdowns, both to Payne.

Hawaii’s Bryant Moniz completed 20 of 36 for 233 yards two touchdowns, both to Justin Clapp.
