SAN DIEGO — Donnel Pumphrey ran for 182 yards and a touchdown on 25 carries as San Diego State ground out a 20-10 win over Hawaii Saturday night.
The Aztecs (4-3, 3-1 Mountain West) ran for 283 yards while holding Hawaii to just 90 and held a 457-264 advantage in total yards.
Pumphrey got San Diego State on the board early, punching in from the 10 with 9:44 left in the first quarter and Donny Hageman kicked a 36-yard field goal for a 10-0 lead after a quarter.
Ikaika Woolsey found Marcus Kemp for a 39-yard second-quarter touchdown pass with five seconds left in the first half to cut the lead to 10-7, but that was the closest Hawaii (2-5, 1-1) could get.
The Aztecs dominated time of possession: 36:07 to 23:53.
