the refs were R I D I C U L O U S !!! that call for roughing the kicker was a JOKE, was that a currupt call or what!! can't blame the kicker for trying and succeeding in getting the call, better yet he choked and missed the GIFT that was given to him. Fresno state had no penaltys at all? must of cost them some $$$$$$$ to pull that off and they still LOST!!!!!!!! KARMAS A BITCH!!!!

At the Fresno State game, it was obvious there was an agenda for the referees to have Fresno State win the game for the sake of the WAC. Fresno was in contention for a BCS invite because of the remaining sure win schedule. However, what comes around,comes around to bite the bulldogs in the okole. Hopefully the WAC Commissioner should be investigated and get his okole chewed too!

I showed up in the bar at 1:30 pm to watch the Hawaii game and 14 beers later technical difficulties made it hard to see anything through my bloodshot eyes.

I was on my first football team in third grade, and that was 42 years ago. Been a fan even before that. Have never seen or heard of a game where one team does not get even one single penalty.
That is freakin' bogus.
The most shocking call was the roughing the kicker penalty. The guy had kicked the ball, and was hopping around, stepped on the fallen UH player, and then flopped.
To call that and potentially give the game to Fresno reeks of alterior motives. What no good were the WAC officials up to?

Did anyone see the Fresno player face mask the player that fell and rolled on the ground that caused the kicker to decide to hop and flop? I saw the comment by a Fresno fan on the Fresno Bee site and then went back to look when the game was replayed. Sure enough, the Fresno dude grabbed our guy's face mask. I guess the refs didn't see that penalty either by Fresno.

Its official. I heard the ref on the running into the kicker call had his finger up his okole.

No flag on Hawaii means they had both hands up their okole.
