HONOLULU (AP) - Dru Brown passed for 311 yards, five touchdowns and no interceptions on Saturday night and Hawaii beat Massachusetts 46-40 to become bowl eligible in the regular season finale for both teams.

Brown threw the go-ahead TD pass 56 yards to Keelan Ewaliko, capping the scoring with 3:52 left in the game. Hawaii (6-7) missed the extra-point conversion.
