Congratulations to Colt Brennan and Solomon Elimimian, who were named the WAC's offensive and defensive players of the week.
Hawaii quarterback Colt Brennan, Hawaii linebacker Solomon Elimimian and Boise State placekicker/punter Kyle Brotzman were named the Western Athletic Conference offensive, defensive and special teams players of the week today.
Brennan completed 40-of-53 passes for 495 yards and five touchdowns with two interceptions in the WAC title-clinching 39-27 win over Boise State last Friday. He also rushed for 18 yards and a touchdown. Three of his touchdown passes came in the third quarter after Hawaii led just 19-17 at the half. Brennan’s 513 yards of total offense marked the third time this season he had 500 or more in a game.
Elimimian had a game-high 14 tackles (10 solo) in the win over Boise State. Elimimian helped the Hawaii defense limit the Broncos to a season-low 101 yards rushing, including just 14 from the WAC’s second leading rusher – Ian Johnson – over the last three quarters
