Bulldogs rush for 352 yards, knock Alexander out of game, by Stephen Tsai
In a paint-melting, pregame speech, Hawai'i football coach Greg McMackin swung around a power chain in the locker room, knocking over cups, to emphasize the importance of last night's game.

It was the most energy — and damage — the Warriors caused all night.
The Warriors were admittedly distracted by news of the tsunami in American Samoa. Defensive tackle Rocky Savaiigaea said he was told his cousin was killed.

Defensive end Fetaiagogo Fonoti, who made his 2009 debut after missing the first three games with an injured left kneecap, had not heard from his mother and brother who were visiting American Samoa.
Thoughts, prayers and condolences to all those affected by the tragedy in the Samoan Islands.

UH loses game, Alexander, by Jason Kaneshiro.
Alexander was initially reported as suffering a sprained left knee and he hobbled out of the locker room at Joe Aillet Stadium on crutches with a large brace around his leg. Alexander is scheduled to have an MRI performed on his knee to determine the extent of the injury.

"I just heard a pop, I don't know what happened," Alexander said. "It happened pretty fast, I think it got stuck in the turf a little bit, I'm not really sure."
Southern discomfort by Jason Kaneshiro
"Our coaches gave us the right schemes; we just didn't show up, we didn't perform," linebacker Blaze Soares said after posting a team-high 12 tackles. "We couldn't stop their basic run plays. We had no energy out there."

Warriors exposed on offense, defense
It wasn't just that UH lost but how the Warriors went about it, languidly, almost in a daze, some playing with heavy hearts following the disaster in Samoa, and totally out-muscled. The Warriors got blown off both lines of scrimmage, gave up yardage in huge chunks, missed tackles and misfired on offense. They yielded seven sacks and turned the ball over three times.
If UH had any hopes of contending for a conference title, they died on the goal line. That's where, at the end of the second quarter, despite seven plays from inside the Tech 20 — and four inside the 2 yard line — UH was unable to punch in a score and went to the locker room down 10-6.

"Eventually we broke their will," said Bulldog coach Derek Dooley, who got his first win in three tries against UH.
Despite false start, UH's Pollard catches on in end
"He came in and played well for Jovonte (Taylor) who had an ankle (injury)," said UH coach Greg McMackin.

Indeed, Pollard's seven catches for 84 yards were more than his career total entering the game.

"He showed us a lot," McMackin said. "He made some plays."
