Chang connected on 35 of 64 passes for Hawaii, which is now 8-2 for the season and 7-1 in the Western Athletic Conference.

Marcus Battle led Rice with two touchdowns. Greg Henderson came off the bench in the fourth quarter and hit Battle for a 54-yard touchdown pass with four and a half minutes left to get Rice within five points.
