1992 ALOHA BOWL

No. 25 BYU 20
Kansas 23

Kansas kicker Dan Eichloff booted a 48-yard field goal with 2:57 left to play, giving the Jayhawks a victory over BYU, the WAC tri-champion. Tom Young, who completed 15 of 31 passes for 262 yards in his first varsity start, was named Most Valuable Player for BYU. Tackle Dana Stubblefield, who had three of the six sacks on Young, won the honor for Kansas. Young had been pressed into action when Ryan Hancock suffered knee ligament damage against Utah in the final regular-season game. The Cougars took an early lead when Hema Heimuli scrambled 94 yards on the opening kickoff for a score. Kansas tied the game two plays later when wide receiver Matt Gay threw a 74-yard touchdown pass to tight end Rodney Harris. BYU took a 14-9 lead in the second quarter when Jamal Willis ran 29 yards for a score. Eichloff then cut the halftime score to 14-12 with a 42-yard field goal. But the kicking game would prove the downfall as the Cougars missed a 36-yard field goal in the first quarter as well as a 31-yarder and misplayed an extra point attempt in the third quarter. Young threw 10 yards to Otis Sterling for the only score of the third quarter. Kansas quarterback Chip Hilleary then tied the game by directing a 75-yard drive in a minute and a half, scoring the touchdown and then running for a two-point conversion.
