UNLV has won four games and Chad can’t be happier. AP reported UNLV’s Nolan Kohorst kicked a 44-yard field goal as time expired to give UNLV a 39-37 win over Hawaii Saturday night.
It was the senior placekicker’s first career game-winning field goal.
The Rebels won a fourth consecutive game for the first time since 2000, while they’ve now won three straight and five of six at home against the Warriors.
UNLV almost gave the game away, as the Warriors scored 20 unanswered points in the fourth quarter to take a one-point lead.
Chad looks forward to the Fresno State game, which could be more of a challenge. The 17th-ranked Bulldogs benefited in the polls from a weekend of upsets that also served as a cautionary lesson on how easily a team can slip up if it loses focus.
