Hawaii Rainbow Warriors
The Hawaii Rainbow Warriors lost 31-10 to the no. 19 Boise State Broncos. Cole McDonald had an up and down game with 241 passing yards and a pick. After Hawaii scored a field goal to start the Broncos scored 31 straight points to blow the game open.
Miles Reed led the Warriors with 87 rushing yards and a touchdown on 12 carries. Jason-Matthew Sharsh went for 74 receiving yards on seven receptions. Jared Smart finished with 72 receiving yards, and JoJo Ward added 69 yards.
Despite getting beat up the defense did a good job in containing the Broncos run game. As a team the Broncos rushed for 3.9 yards per carry. Ikem Okeke led the defense with nine tackles, and Kai Kaneshiro had an interception for the defense.
The BYU Cougars are coming off a 13-3 loss against the San Diego State Aztecs on November 30th. BYU scored the first three point of the game but were shut out the rest of the way.
Zach Wilson had a shaky game despite having 316 passing yards. Wilson threw two interceptions and completed only 31/53 of his passes. The Cougars ground game did nothing. As a team BYU had only 78 yards on 27 carries.
Talon Shumway led the team with 83 receiving yards, and Matt Bushman added 59 yards.
Strangely enough the Cougars had 416 total yards and the Aztecs only had 269. The difference is that the Cougars had three turnovers and the Aztecs didn’t have one.
