  • WARRIOR FOOTBALL 2 GAME 13: UAB (12/24/04)

    CHANG - NCAA CAREER PASSING LEADER - CATCHES FIRE IN LAST THREE GAMES Warrior quarterback Timmy Chang, who celebrated his 23rd birthday on Oct. 9, broke the NCAA career passing record on Nov. 6, 2004, in the first quarter against Louisiana Tech. The record-breaking toss was a 7-yard touchdown pass to Jason Rivers. Chang, who earned WAC Player of the Week honors (Nov. 8) for his 285-yard and four-touchdown per- formance against Louisiana Tech, currently leads the WAC in both passing (321.1) and total offense (322.6, 3rd nationally). On. Oct. 29, 2004, at Boise State, Chang broke the NCAA career record for total offense, surpassing Detmer’s mark of 14,665 and currently has 16,508 yards. The native of Waipahu, Oahu broke the school record for most pass attempts without an interception earlier this season throwing 178 times without a pick in four games. Prior to 2004, his last interception was in the third quarter of the Sheraton Hawai‘i Bowl against Houston on Dec. 25, 2003. He tossed the pigskin a total of 200 times without an intercep- tion dating back to the 2003 season. On. Nov. 20 against Idaho, Chang tied the school record for most touchdown passes in a quarter with four in the second. He finished with a career-high six in the game. In his last three games, Chang has completed 83-of-136 passes for 1,197 yards and 14 TDs, opposed to 1,043 yards and eight TDs in his first three games of the 2004 season. Chang has already accepted an invitation to play in the East/West Shrine Game on Jan. 15, 2005, at SBC Park in San Francisco, Calif., and received an invitation to play in the Hula Bowl Maui on Jan. 22, 2005. In 2004, Chang owns two of the 2004 top 20 single-game performances in total offense with 448 yards against Michigan State on Dec. 4 (tied for 9th), and 434 yards against Northwestern on Nov. 27 (18th). He also ranks among the top 25 single-game performances in 2004 in pass completions with 38 against Florida Atlantic on Sept. 4 (6th), 34 against Rice on Sept. 18 (tied for 16th), and 31 against Northwestern on Nov. 27 (tied for 23rd). Chang finished his junior season by coming off the bench to throw for 475 yards and five touchdowns to lead the Warriors to a come-from- behind victory (54-48 in 3OT) against Houston in the Sheraton Hawai‘i Bowl on Dec. 25.

    BOWLING WARRIORS Hawai‘i has participated in six bowl games since becoming a member of the NCAA in 1976. The first bowl game was Dec. 25, 1989 when the Warriors fell to Michigan State (33-13) in the Jeep Eagle Aloha Bowl. In 1992, Hawai‘i enjoyed a 27-17 win over Illinois in the Thrifty Car Rental Holiday Bowl at Jack Murphy Stadium in San Dingo, Calif. Head coach June Jones has led the Warriors to four bowl games in his six seasons at the helm. In his first sea- son, the Warriors upset Oregon State, 23-17, in the Jeep Oahu Bowl on Dec. 25, 1999. On Dec. 25, 2002, Hawai‘i fell to Tulane, 36-28, in the first-ever ConAgra Foods Hawai‘i Bowl. Last season, the Warriors outlasted Houston, 54-48, in triple overtime, in the Sheraton Hawai‘i Bowl. This is the first time in school history the Warriors have played in three con- secutive bowl games. Warrior head coach Bob Wagner is the only other UH coach to lead the Warriors to a post-season bowl game.

    WILLING AND ABE-L Senior cornerback Abraham Elimimian, a first team all-WAC pick, has proven he is one the WAC’s best cornerbacks in 2004. The Los Angeles, Calif. native, is tied for the WAC lead and ninth nationally, averaging 0.45 interceptions per game. He has five picks in 12 games this season and 12 career interceptions, one shy of the school record of 13 set by Keone Jardine (1977-79) and Kevin Millhouse (2001-03). He needs four more to tie the season record of nine set by Walter Briggs in 1989. The veteran is also third in the WAC averaging 1.27 PBUs per game, and is fifth on the team with 58 tackles (41 solo) and leads all Warriors with seven PBUs this season. Elimimian’s 12 career interceptions ranks 10th among active players and he is one of six players to post three interceptions in a game this season. Elimimian was an honorable mention all-WAC pick in 2003 after co-leading the team with four interceptions, 10 pass break ups and added 58 tackles as a junior. The seasoned veteran started 32 straight games (and 35 of the last 37) before missing his first game against Idaho (hamstring) on Nov. 20. He returned to the starting line up against Northwestern on Nov. 27. Elimimian picked up a fumble and dashed 21 yards into the endzone against Louisiana Tech on Nov. 6, his second touchdown of the season. Elimimian has recorded 237 tackles, including 10.5 for-a-loss (-37), 42 pass break ups, and 12 interceptions. Last season, Elimimian was the only Warrior starter in the defensive secondary who did not allow a receiving touchdown in 14 games at left corner. Elimimian also plays a role on special teams and blocked a potential game-tying field goal attempt against Rice in 2003 and an extra point attempt against Nevada on Oct. 9, 2004.
