  With former-SEC transfer Nick Starkel out of eligibility, his heir apparent appeared to be backup Nick Nash, who filled in admirably during six starts as an injury replacement. But another dual-threat QB from the Mountain West entered the picture in Hawaii transfer Chevan Cordeiro. "His ability to make every throw, we've seen him do that against us," Brennan said. As a redshirt freshman in 2019, Cordeiro threw for over 300 yards and three TDs and ran for another pair in 42-40 victory over SJSU. "I've been a fan of that young guy ever since," Brennan said. Also added to the mix is incoming freshman Tyler Voss, a three-star recruit out of Southern California. "He spins it as cleans as anybody I've seen, but he also has the ability to move," Brennan said. - San Jose Mercury News

He announced the move on his Instagram account. Cordeiro, a Saint Louis School alumnus, announced his departure from the Rainbow Warriors last week. He will have two seasons of eligibility remaining. He threw for 6,167 yards in 36 games across four seasons, with 45 touchdown passes and 22 interceptions. He also ran for 1,083 yards and 13 scores.

  Chevan Cordeiro threw for three touchdowns and ran for another as Hawaii became bowl-eligible with a 38-14 victory over Wyoming on Saturday.

  Chevan Cordeiro passed for two touchdowns and ran for another, Dedrick Parson scored on runs of 10 and 37 yards in the fourth quarter and Hawaii held on to beat Colorado State 50-45 on Saturday night and snap a three-game skid. Cordeiro completed 23 of 41 passes for 406 yards and Parson finished with 11 carries for 78 yards Hawaii (5-7, 2-5 Mountain West Conference). Cordeiro scored on a 15-yard run to give Hawaii (4-7, 1-5) the lead for good early in the second quarter.

About six minutes later, he was flushed from the pocket and, as he rolled to his left, lofted a pass from the end zone to Zion Bowens at the 30 who raced untouched down the left sideline for a 93-yard touchdown - the second-longest pass play in program history - and after Cameron Lockridge returned an interception 40 yards for a TD just before halftime, Cordeiro hit Nick Mardner at the goal line for a 42-yard score to make it 36-10 with 9:35 left in the third quarter. Todd Centeio hit Gary Williams for a 3-yard touchdown about four minutes later and connected with Cam Butler for a 24-yard touchdown early in the fourth quarter before David Bailey scored on a 34-yard run to trim Colorado State's deficit to 36-31 with 7:04 to play. Centeio finished 29-of-48 passing for 527 and five touchdowns for Colorado State (3-8, 2-5).

  10/31/21 - Nick NashrJr/2023, San Jose State, 6-0, 184 (DS#999 QB) + More +

  Quarterback Nick Nash accounted for 262 yards of total offense and a pair of touchdowns and San Jose State led all the way in a 27-21 win over Wyoming on Saturday. Nash threw for 150 yards and a touchdown and ran for 112 yards on 11 carries and scored once on the ground. His 1-yard touchdown run in the second quarter made it 7-0 early in the second quarter. The Spartans (5-4, 3-2 Mountain West Conference) defense came up with an interception of Levi Williams on the following drive, which led to Matt Mercurio's 36-yard field goal and a 10-0 lead. Williams responded with a 54-yard touchdown pass to Isaiah Neyor on Wyoming's ensuing drive (4-4, 0-4), but the Spartans responded with a seven-play, 81-yard drive that ended when Kairee Robinson ran it in from the 9-yard line to make it a 10-point game again. Xazavian Valladay ran for 172 yards on 22 carries for the Cowboys and Neyor caught both of Williams' scoring passes. - San Jose State/AP College Football

  10/21/21 - Nick NashrJr/2023, San Jose State, 6-0, 184 (DS#999 QB) + More +

  Nick Nash scored the winning touchdown on a 15-yard quarterback draw as San Jose State turned a blocked field goal into the decisive drive, beating UNLV 27-20 on Thursday night. Nash passed for 213 yards and ran for a career-high 121 more. The Spartans (4-4, 2-2 Mountain West) never led until there was 7:06 remaining in the game, capping a comeback 24-3 run and then holding off UNLV's final 19-play drive until time expired. The Rebels came as close as the 11-yard line. San Jose State, the defending Mountain West champion, had fought into a 20-20 tie a series earlier after a grinding 88-yard, 11-play drive on Tyler Neven's TD from the 10 - cutting away from would-be tacklers at the 5 - less than a minute into the fourth quarter.

The Spartans then partially blocked a 39-yard field goal attempt, foiling UNLV's attempt to retake the lead. Rebels kicker Daniel Gutierrez had hit twice earlier, including a career-long 53-yarder, extending his school-record streak of made field goals to 16. The loss extends UNLV's losing streak to 12 games, reaching through the 2020 season. Early on, UNLV (0-7, 0-3) turned two San Jose State fumbles into short touchdown drives - from the 20 and the 18 - as the Rebels built a 17-3 lead deep into the second quarter. Cameron Friel completed 20 of 28 passes for 240 yards and a touchdown for UNLV. Charles Williams carried 24 times for 94 yards and a touchdown. - San Jose State/AP College Football

  Chevan Cordeiro threw for a first-half touchdown and ran for a second-half score as Hawaii snapped a two-game losing streak with a 41-21 win over New Mexico State on Saturday night. The Aggies took a 3-0 lead on Ethan Albertson's 33-yard, first-quarter field goal, but Hawaii answered on its next play from scrimmage when Cordeiro hit Nick Mardner with a 74-yard touchdown pass to start a run of 17 unanswered points. New Mexico State (1-4) got a second-quarter touchdown pass from Jonah Johnson to Robert Downs III from six-yards out and Albertson converted a 20-yard field goal to make it 17-13 at intermission.

Cordeiro nosed in from a yard out in the third quarter and Calvin Turner Jr. added a 14-yard run for a touchdown early in the fourth quarter as the Rainbow Warriors (2-3) pulled away. Johnson ran three-yards for a touchdown for New Mexico State, but Hawaii closed the game out with a 41-yard field goal from Matthew Shipley and Dedrick Parson added a 19-yard touchdown run with 1:52 left to put the game away. Cordeiro was 16 of 25 for 277 yards and a touchdown and had a pass picked off. Mardner caught four passes for 120 yards. Johnson was 28 of 47 for 280 yards, a touchdown and an interception.

  Nick Starkel threw a pair of touchdown passes about three minutes apart and San Jose State beat Hawaii 17-13 on Saturday night in the Mountain West Conference opener for both teams. Kairee Robinson blocked a punt to set up a seven-play, 44-yard drive culminating when Starkel hit Isaiah Hamilton for a 13-yard score and, after a Hawaii three-and-out, he connected with Jermaine Braddock 1-yard TD with 2:23 left in the first half to give San Jose State the lead for good at 14-7. SJSU (2-1) has won nine conference games dating to a 38-35 loss to UNLV on November 23, 2019. Hawaii's Calvin Turner scored on a 1-yard touchdown run to open the scoring late in the first quarter and Matthew Shipley made field goals of 25 and 23 yards in the third quarter to make it 14-13.

Matt Mercurio kicked a 26-yard field goal to cap the scoring with 1:19 to play. Turner returned the kickoff the Hawaii 36 and the Rainbow Warriors moved to the SJSU 21 before time expired. San Jose State's Kyle Harmon was ejected after he was flagged for targeting early in the fourth quarter. The senior linebacker, an all-MWC selection last season, finished with nine tackles, five solo. Chevan Cordeiro completed 18 of 39 passes for 242 yards and added 39 yards rushing for Hawaii (1-3). Robinson finished with 21 carries for 55 yards and three receptions for 34 yards. - San Jose State/AP College Football

  Chevan Cordeiro passed for three touchdowns, Dedrick Parson ran for two scores and Hawaii beat Portland State 49-35 on Saturday night in the first-ever football game played on school campus. The 9,000-seat retro-fitted Clarence T.C. Ching Complex will be the program's home until the New Aloha Stadium Entertainment District is completed. It was Hawaii's first home game outside of Aloha Stadium since Dec. 7, 1974 when the Rainbow Warriors hosted Arizona State at Honolulu Stadium, which had served as the team's home field from 1926-74.

Cordeiro threw touchdown passes to Nick Mardner and Jared Smart, Calvin scored on a wild winding 38-yard run - on which he crossed over into Hawaii territory before racing down the left sideline into the end zone - and Parson ran for a 17-yard TD as the Rainbow Warriors scored touchdowns on their first four possessions to take a 28-0 lead at the end of the first quarter. Parson added a 2-yard TD run in the third quarter and Dae Dae Hunter, who finished with 128 yards rushing, scored on a 59-yard run in the fourth for Hawaii (1-1). Davis Alexander threw for 400 yards and three touchdowns for Portland State (0-1), but much of that came after the Rainbow Warriors had the game well in hand. Cordeiro finished 18-of-25 passing with one interception and had 66 yards rushing. - Hawaii/AP College Football

  Playing in front of its home fans for the first time in 637 days, San Jose State didn't disappoint Saturday night in its season opener. The reigning Mountain West champion hit the ground running as the Spartans opened their season with a 45-14 rout of Southern Utah at CEFCU Stadium. The Spartans (1-0) found the end zone on each of their first five possessions, with quarterback Nick Starkel orchestrating a quick-strike attack. The senior threw for 394 yards and four touchdowns before being replaced to open the fourth quarter. He also ran it in from a yard out on the game's opening drive. Starkel spread the wealth by hooking up with 10 different targets, including TDs of 23 yards to Jermaine Braddock in the first quarter, explosive plays of 70 and 65 yards in the second quarter to tight end Sam Olson and Nevada transfer Charles Ross, respectively, plus a 14-yard floater to tight end Derrick Deese Jr. in the third quarter. - San Jose Mercury News

  Nick Starkel threw for four touchdowns and 394 yards and defending Mountain West Conference champion San Jose State kicked off the season with a 45-14 win over Southern Utah on Saturday night. Starkel, who finished 17-of-28 passing to nine receivers with one interception, also had a rushing touchdown to tie his career high with five total TDs. He finished 6 yards short of his fifth 400-yard passing game and a one TD throw shy of his career best. The Spartans outgained the Thunderbirds 534-250.

Starkel's 1-yard run opened the scoring and San Jose State led 21-0 after one quarter. Starkel threw three first-half TD passes, including a 70-yarder to Sam Olson and a 65-yarder to Charles Ross with the Spartans leading 35-14 at the break. Starkel's lone interception was a pick-6 returned by Kobe Singleton. Thunderbirds quarterback Justin Miller caught a TD pass off a trick play that came after a muffed punt by the Spartans, their first lost fumble since the 2019 season. The Spartans went undefeated in six MWC games, were 7-1 overall and finished 24th in the final Associated Press poll last season. They drew 16,204 fans to Saturday's game, their largest home crowd since 2011. - San Jose State/AP College Football

  Since its inception in 2012, San Jose State University quarterback Nick Starkel is the first and only Spartan eligible to be nominated for the Earl Campbell Tyler Rose Award.

Starkel finished his first San Jose State season leading the Spartans to a Mountain West championship, the school's first conference football title since 1991. He became the first known first-year player in a San Jose State uniform to be named a season team captain and completed 64.2 percent of his passes for 2,174 yards and 17 touchdowns in eight games. Returning for his final year of college football, Starkel starts the 2021 season as one of 53 Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) players named to the Earl Campbell Tyler Rose Award preseason watch list.
