SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Backup quarterback Shane Austin threw for a career-high 299 yards and Leon Wright-Jackson scored on a 5-yard touchdown run in overtime to lift Hawaii to a 17-10 win over San Jose State on Saturday night.
The Warriors (5-6, 3-5 Western Athletic), who won their third straight after a six-game losing streak, had several chances to put the Spartans away but couldn't until Wright-Jackson took a pitch from Austin and scampered around the left end untouched into the end zone.
Kyle Reed came off the bench to throw for 131 yards for San Jose State (1-9, 0-6) and scored the Spartans' lone touchdown but threw three straight incompletions in overtime.
Both teams had opportunities to win in regulation. Hawaii kicker Scott Enos missed a 31-yard field goal with 3:48 left while San Jose's Lamon Muldrow fumbled in Warriors territory with less than a minute remaining.
