Quick, who scored the final points in the last college football game to end in a tie? The answer is former University of Hawaii slotback John Veneri, whose reception for a two-point conversion in the game’s waning moments allowed the Rainbow Warriors to forge a tie with Missouri, 32-32, in a November 1994 contest. The NCAA implemented overtime rules the following season.
Veneri be our featured guest tomorrow on our next ESPN Honolulu “Fan Friday: Talk Story” session. This exclusive interview, conducted via Zoom and hosted by Tiff Wells, will be available for viewing on our ESPN Honolulu Facebook page starting at 10:00 a.m.
Veneri is now a popular KHON TV host and personality as well as the color analyst for ESPN Honolulu’s Rainbow Warrior football broadcasts.
