Alexander passes Hawaii past Wash. State 38-20

SEATTLE, Wash. - Greg Alexander threw for a career-high 453 yards and three touchdowns and Hawaii won a road game over a team from a BCS conference for the first time in seven tries, 38-20 over Washington State on Saturday night.

Greg Salas caught seven of Alexander's 26 completions for 195 yards and a touchdown. The much faster Warriors (2-0) started their longest stretch of games off the islands in 45 years by speeding to a 35-0 lead early in the second quarter and gaining a 623 yards in all.

And it could have been much worse for Washington State (0-2).

The Cougars were scheduled to welcome Ohio State, but the Buckeyes paid WSU $450,000 to get out of the game and had a showdown Saturday night against Southern California instead.

The Cougars were left humbled by Hawaii , which last week needed 17 unanswered points to squeak by lower-division Central Arkansas.
