Stuart Williams kicked a 36-yard game-winning field goal and Brett Smith passed for a single-game school record seven touchdowns in leading Wyoming to a 59-56 overtime win against Hawaii on Saturday.

Wyoming (5-6, 3-4 Mountain West) snapped a four-game losing streak and kept its chances for becoming bowl eligible alive for another week.

Hawaii (0-11, 0-8) remains winless on the season. It was its second straight overtime loss and fifth loss by 7 points or less.

In a game that featured 10 scoring drives lasting less than 2 minutes each, the offenses of both teams had their way much of the day, combining for 1,417 total yards.

Wyoming gained 793 total yards, a Mountain West record and the second most by a team in the NCAA this season, and the Rainbow Warriors 624.

Smith himself accounted for a conference record 640 yards total offense for the Cowboys, completing 29 of 48 passes for 498 yards and rushing 19 times for 142. His total yardage is the most by an individual NCAA player so far this season.

Smith had two TD passes of more than 70 yards and one 47-yarder. His seven TD passes tied the Mountain West record accomplished by Max Hall of BYU in 2008 against UCLA and is the most by an NCAA quarterback this year.

Robert Herron caught 11 of Smith's passes for 141 yards and tied a school record with four touchdowns. Dominic Rufran snagged seven passes for 121 yards.

Smith also had a 51-yard run for a score. The eight TDs he took part in are the most by a single player in Mountain West history.

Sean Schroeder led Hawaii, passing for a career-high six TDs and 499 yards. His 33-yard TD pass and subsequent 2-point conversion toss to Chris Gant, who tied a school record with four TD receptions, with 1:18 left in regulation, forced the game into overtime at 56-56.

In overtime, Hawaii got the ball first at the Cowboys 25 yard line and drove down to the Wyoming 4 yard line on four straight runs by Joey Iosefa. However, the Cowboys defense stuffed Iosefa on third and 1 and linebacker Devyn Harris dropped him for a 1-yard loss on fourth down, meaning Wyoming's offense only needed a field goal to win the game.

On Wyoming's ensuing possession from the Hawaii 25 yard line, the Cowboys lost 2 yards on their first two plays, but Smith completed a 9-yard pass to Jalen Claiborne to set up Williams' winning field goal.
