Bet 2010 BCS National Championship
The school said Thursday that Alexander will have surgery Saturday to repair ``major ligament damage.''
Entering the Louisiana Tech game, the senior led the nation in total offense (446 yards), ranked second in passing (411.3 yards) and fifth in passing efficiency (178.8).
Alexander threw for 199 yards and two interceptions before being knocked out of the game late in the third quarter. After scrambling out of the pocket, Alexander took a jarring hit from Adrien Cole near the sideline.
Warriors coach Greg McMackin calls it a ``huge loss'' for his program and added that he's ``heartbroken.''
Oddsmakers from online sports book Sports Interaction have made Hawaii 25/1 to win the 2010 BCS National Championship as part of “the field.”
