Arizona quarterback Khalil Tate’s desperate scamper as time expired came up agonizingly short in the Wildcats’ loss to Hawaii Saturday night.
Down 45-38 with mere seconds remaining, Tate took the snap, looked to throw, and instead took off, breaking tackles to get inside the 10, inside the five, and…stopped at the one-yard-line.
It was a miracle for Arizona to even be in a position to tie. The Wildcats got the ball back on its own 16-yard-line with 51 seconds and no timeouts. Tate led the offense down the field into Hawaii territory, setting up the final play.
Arizona wasted six Hawaii turnovers and 469 total yards from Tate. Kevin Sumlin is now 0-2 in openers at Arizona.
