Hawaii 25, Central Arkansas 20


Thank goodness UH won. At certain points, either Central Arkansas looked really good or UH looked really bad. Hopefully it was just opening game jitters and some rust that needed to be knocked off. On the bright side, safeties Mana Silva and Spencer Smith looked great. Blaze Soares is back! Greg Salas looked unstoppable. Here are some stats via SideArmStats.com:

Greg Alexander was 21 of 32 for 304 yards with 3 TDs and 1 INT. He also rushed 16 times for 76 yards.

Greg Salas had 7 catches for 180 yards and 1 TD.

Mana Silva, Spencer Smith and R.J. Kiesel-Kauhane led the team with 10 tackles apiece.

Blaze Soares had 7 tackles.

KGMB has some video highlights from the game.
