(Newser) – Hawaii's Warriors battled back in the final seconds of regulation to beat the San Jose Spartans in overtime last night, reports the AP. Hawaii quarterback Colt Brennan connected on 44 of 75 and rocketed a total of 545 yards, matching his four interceptions with four touchdowns to eclipse Dwight Lowrey's two huge touchdown runs for San Jose.

Lowrey's scores, on a punt return and interception, combined with Spartans quarterback Adam Tafralis' two touchdown passes to pad a 35-21 lead with four minutes remaining. But Brennan, clearly recovered from an ankle injury that held him back last week, pushed his team twice down the field to tie the game, then connected with Jason Rivers for the winning touchdown in overtime.
