I'll put the updates in order from top to bottom, instead of bottom to top blog post order. A little over half an hour to gametime and I'm crapping my pants!
1:06pm - First play: Graunke gets the start, runs for a first down, and gets his helmet knocked off! Nice start.
1:07pm - Yikes, two delay of games in a row.
1:09pm - Colt Brennan comes in and completes a pass to Ross Dickerson for the first down. Nice!
1:11pm - Errrr, Brennan throws an interception. SC returns for a touchdown. Sadness.
1:20pm - Next series. We have another misstep with snap timing, but Davone Bess just made a catch for first down. Maneafaiga looks like a good runner as well.
1:23pm - Ian Sample just made his first catch, for a first down. Pretty good!
1:24pm - Looks like Graunke is a better runner than Brennan. Lots of QB running plays for Hawaii. Graunke has had like three good runs so far, the latest for a first down. Interesting strategy!
1:29pm - Wow, our offense is actually doing pretty good. We're converting on third downs!
1:32pm - Man, Hawaii's offense really gotta get in sync on hiking the ball. False starts and delay of games up the yin yang.
1:35pm - Shit. Samson Satele is injured. Let's hope it's not serious. The first quarter is almost over and our offense has had the ball the whole time. Over 13 minutes in all, two drives.
1:38pm - Not an ideal drive, but freshman Warrior Dan Kelly makes the first field goal of his college career. Just found out Satele is not seriously injured. Thank the baby Jesus! Score - Hawaii 3, USC 7
1:43pm - Hawaii defense makes its first foray onto the field with 1:20 left in the first quarter. Not too bad, though we have given up a few moderate runs. Let's hope we have a chance to lay down the sack on Leinart's chin.
1:48pm - SoCal is having it's own problems with false starts. Two in a row. Maybe it's just really loud in Aloha Stadium.
1:52pm - Man, Dwayne Jarrett was wide open in the end zone. Hawaii 3, USC 14
1:56pm - Remember when Hawaii ran the triple option? Tyler Graunke would be great running it. He just ran 10 yards for a first down to open this series.
2:00pm - We had to punt after a few good first downs. Not too bad. Let's hope the defense can bring it for this series. In other news, maybe there are too many entries? We'll see at the half.
2:06pm - Nice forced fumble by Ikaika Alama-Francis! Too bad USC recovered.
2:08pm - Looks like Kenny Patton, who is still recovering from arthroscopic surgery on his knee, just got injured. Why the hell is he in the game? Didn't he have surgery less than two weeks ago?
2:12pm - Reggie Bush just ran 41 yards for a touchdown. It looked way too easy. Hawaii 3, USC 21
2:15pm - Tyler Graunke can pass too. 36 yard completion.
2:26pm - Offsides penalty on two Warriors on 4th and 5 resulting in a Trojan first down. That sucks.
2:32pm - Yay! Hawaii's first defensive stop! Missed field goal, baby! I still have confidence. :56 seconds left in the half. Let's go for the Hail Mary baby!
2:36pm - HALFTIME. Okay, so no Hail Mary. UH is actually doing not too bad on offense, though they're not completing drives. Defense is absolutely horrible. Let's hope it was all on purpose. Hawaii will bring out the real defense next half!
2:58pm - Not a very good opening kickoff by Hawaii. It was a pooch that some guy returned to Hawaii's 41.
3:02pm - HELL YEAH! Kenny Patton is not seriously injured and makes an interception in the end zone!
3:13pm - Leinart to Jarrett for 28 yards. Hawaii 3, USC 28
. Effin Ess!
3:19pm - Maneafaiga is the man! 27 yard touchdown catch after a 40 plus yard open field catch by Dickerson! Hawaii 10, USC 28
3:23pm - USC answers with a goddamn bomb. Our backfield sucks. Hawaii 10, USC 35
3:37pm - Our offense can move the ball, but we can't finish off drives. We just got stopped on a 4th and 6. We're getting there.
3:39pm - Man, we are getting no pressure on the QB. And then the cornerbacks lose their man. Hawaii 10, USC 42
. I'm beginning to think the hairy oracle misspoke.
3:42pm - UH just fumbled the kickoff return. Somebody returns for a touchdown. Hawaii 10, USC 49
3:46pm - Davone Bess just fumbled a completion. USC recovers.
3:59pm - Now they're just rubbing it in =( Hawaii 10, USC 56
4:14pm - USC punts for the first time all game. Davone Bess nearly fumbled the return. This is now just practice for the Michigan State game. Forlorn
4:27pm - Graunke to David Farmer for a touchdown. Hawaii 17, USC 56
. At least Dan Kelly hasn't missed a PAT!
4:29pm - Hawaii tries an onside kick, but USC recovers and takes it to Hawaii's 27 yard line.
4:32pm - With 20 seconds left in the game, USC runs a running play that results in a touchdown. Hawaii 17, USC 63
4:35pm - FINAL SCORE: Hawaii 17, USC 63
