HONOLULU (Ticker) -- Timmy Chang will add to his NCAA all-time passing record.

Chang, a senior, completed 29-of-49 passes for 416 yards and threw four touchdowns to fellow senior Chad Owens as Hawaii clinched a berth in the Hawaii Bowl with a 41-38 victory over Michigan State.

The only player in NCAA history to throw for over 16,000 yards, Chang gave Hawaii (7-5) the lead for good, 34-31, with a one-yard rush with 9:22 left. The Warriors (7-5) needed to win the become bowl eligible, but trailed 21-0 after a one-yard scoring rush with nine minutes early in the second quarter.

Teague added another one-yard touchdown before the end of the half to give the Spartans (5-7) a 28-14 advantage.

Chang found Owens for two scores in the third. The second drew Hawaii within 28-27, but Justin Ayat missed the extra point, setting the stage for Chang's heroics in the final period.

Owens, who scored five touchdowns last week, had 13 receptions for 283 yards in this one, including a 16-yard TD catch that gave the Warriors a comfortable 41-31 advantage with just under four minutes to go.

Teague added his third one-yard TD of the game late, but Hawaii recovered the onside kick to ensure the victory.
