In a contest that would essentially decide the Western Athletic Conference championship, BYU edged Hawaii, 13-3.
During the Cougars' national championship run in 1984, one of their toughest games came against Hawaii, where BYU linebacker Kyle Morrell made what is considered the best defensive play in school history. He dove over the line of scrimmage late in the game to prevent a touchdown and help preserve an 18-13 victory.
Hawaii snapped a 10-game losing streak to BYU by drilling the Cougars, 56-14.
On the same day that BYU quarterback Ty Detmer won the Heisman Trophy, the Warriors blasted the Cougars again, 59-28.
In the season-opener, BYU held on for a 13-12 victory over the Warriors.
Going into this game, BYU was undefeated and ranked in the top 10. But it was playing without running back Luke Staley, who had won the Doak Walker Award earlier in the week. For Hawaii, this was like a bowl game, and the Warriors crushed the Cougars, 72-45.Cougars on the air
