USC 49, Hawaii 36

The Good:

The UH offense looked good, wracking up 588 yards of total offense, including 459 yards through the air.

In particular, Kealoha Pilares looked stronger and faster than ever. He finished the game with 5 catches for 176 yards and 3 TDs.

The UH offensive line was impressive, especially early in the game.

UH didn't turn the ball over.

The Bad:

Every time UH creeped back within striking distance, USC would come back with a big play. The UH defense had a rough game. USC had 524 yards of offense and looked at times like they could move the ball at will.

Injuries to Bryant Moniz, Laupepa Letuli and Rodney Bradley. Not sure what the severity of the injuries are. Moniz took a blow to the head, so hopefully he doesn't have a concussion.

News Coverage:

Here's the post-game wrap-up from the Star Advertiser.
The No. 14-ranked Southern California Trojans shook off a pesky University of Hawaii football team to secure a 49-36 victory last night before 41,777 at Aloha Stadium.

USC (1-0) sophomore quarterback Matt Bradley threw five touchdown passes, including three to wideout Ronald Johnson, and answered every challenge the Hawaii (0-1) offense could muster in this high-scoring affair that saw Warriors signal-caller Bryant Moniz knocked out of the game in the third quarter by linebacker Michael Morgan.
LA Times had some in-game updates as well as some analysis.

Jaymes Song of the AP has a wrap-up.
Hawaii (0-1) never quit but seemed to lose steam when quarterback Bryant Moniz was knocked out of the game late in the third quarter from a hard hit by Michael Morgan. Moniz was injured on a 13-yard scramble that set up a 1-yard TD run by Alex Green to cut USC's lead to 11 with 1:54 left in the third.

Moniz, who was taken to the locker room and examined for a possible concussion, was replaced by backup Brent Rausch. He was ineffective and replaced by Shane Austin, who threw two scores in the fourth.

Moniz was 18 of 36 for 269 yards and a touchdown. He also had 38 yards rushing.

    Good game guys. Thought you might actually pull out the upset last night (early this morning for me here in Germany). Good luck the rest of the year ('cept against my Broncos LOL)!

    Yea, Good games. Kinda glad the WAC is going away. Hopefully the refs go away 2. USC still one that game but could have been even closer. Got to tighten up on the drop passes and D needs to work on tackling, alot of things:) But we will do just fine in the WAC. Go Warriors!

    I think Green looked good, we should run the ball more . . . hopefully no injuries . . . Go Warriors from Alaska!

    we did very well despite being overmatched. our receivers are gonna be awesome this year.

    i dont understand why we were in the pistol though? was it purely to give usc a different look than what they prepared for?
