Hawaii 41, Louisiana Tech 21

Nice win for the Warriors to open up WAC play. Kealoha Pilares and Greg Salas are beastly beasts. That LaTech hurry-up offense was crazy. It was good experience for the UH defense to face something like that, or at the very least it was good cardio. Here are some stats from the game:

UH had 647 yards of total offense, including 532 yards passing from Bryant Moniz. He was 42 of 58 for 4 TDs and no interceptions. That's Nick Rolovich numbers!

Kealoha Pilares had a ridiculous school-record-breaking 18 catches for 217 yards and 2 TDs.

Greg Salas had a pedestrian 10 catches for 197 yards and 2 TDs.

Corey Paredes led the team with 9 tackles.

The Star-Advertiser has a game summary.

ESPN.com has the AP recap, which includes links to stats and game photos.

The Shreveport Times has a few quotes from LaTech coach Sonny Dykes.
Hawaii's passing game riddled the Bulldogs' defense for 532 yards through the air.

"They're kind of what we're looking to get,'' Dykes said. "They throw it around and make it look pretty easy. That's what we're trying to do with our offense.''
Here's The Sports Network game recap, which has this interest bit of info:
Moniz fell short of Colt Brennan's school record of 559 passing yards in one game.
HawaiiAthletics.com has a game summary with links to post-game notes and quotes, including this one from Greg McMackin:
On how LaTech’s no-huddle offense caused defensive problems
“It does because you got to get the call in and they’re getting a play off ever 22 seconds. You can’t practice it until you line up against it. So in the first half we were pretty good about it, and then I think we got a little tired because it’s a fast pace deal. In the first half we got off early, but in the second we sort of went back to the Colorado deal with not getting (our defense) off, so we’re getting tired and we make a mistake and they score. We got to get consistent. We’re really young on defense and we just have to get better.”

    Good win for UH. Important one, too. The next five games look to be really tough. All of those teams won their games this week and four of them currently have winning records. And the one that doesn't (Utah State) just beat up BYU (a bit easier this season, but still a big win) and played Oklahoma close.

    Plus, with Texas, Penn State and NC State all losing Nevada may have a chance at cracking the top twenty. And since NC State lost to VTech it adds back a bit of the luster to Boise's early season win.

    Interesting year!
