Louisiana Tech 27, UH 6

That was a really frustrating game. Offense couldn't get in gear, and defense looked overmatched and/or out of position. UH really needs to shore up their run defense by the time Fresno comes to town. And let's hope Greg Alexander is okay. Here's a post-game summary from Jason Kaneshiro.
Hawaii opened the Western Athletic Conference schedule with a 27-6 loss to Louisiana Tech today at Joe Aillet Stadium.

Hawaii quarterback Greg Alexander, the nation’s leader in total offense entering the game, was knocked out of the game late in the third quarter with a sprained left knee and was replaced by Bryant Moniz. Alexander passed for 199 yards before suffering the injury.

LaTech running back Daniel Porter powered the LaTech ground game and scored two touchdowns as the Bulldogs improved to 2-2.
Here's a post-game summary from the Advertiser.
It was the first time the Warriors were held without a touchdown since a 69-3 loss to Boise State in 2004.
UPDATE: HawaiiAthletics has a post-game summary with links to game notes, quotes and a box score. Here are some of those quotes:
Hawai`i Head Coach Greg McMackin


“Give credit to LA Tech. The problem against the run was the worst exhibition of tackling in football. We were diving and not tackling the way we teach. We’re not that kind of football team.”
Hawaii linebacker Blaze Soares
“It was a big audience tonight. It was very embarrassing to perform like that on national television. This is not Hawaii defense. I don’t know what to say about our defense tonight.”

“You can’t do all your talking off the field; where it counts is on the field. We didn’t show up. A few players did, but other than that, no energy. There’s no excuses. We should have performed the way we perform every weekend.”
Stat of the night is Louisiana Tech's rushing totals: 57 carries for 352 yards.

Here's a wrap-up from LaTechSports.com.
"The sacks were just devastating," said Tech head coach Derek Dooley. "We had seven on the night. Coach (Tommy) Spangler had a great game plan. He was changing coverages and personnel. Everybody played with heart. I saw our entire team enjoy competing."
