A week after Bryant Moniz set a new UH passing mark, Green took down a 60-year old rushing record, surpassing Pete Wilson’s mark of 270 yards set in 1950. Green rushed for 169 yards by halftime and eclipsed the record in less than three quarters of action. The native of Portland, Ore., who scored three touchdowns, exploded for six runs of 30 yards or longer and averaged 17.2 yards on 19 carries

With his huge performance Green also surpassed 1,000 yards on the season becoming just the seventh Warrior to achieve the feat and first since Travis Sims in 1992.

Green was not the only record-breaking Warrior on the day. Senior receiver Greg Salas surpassed Jason Rivers as the school’s all-time leader in receiving yards with a 35-yard reception late in the first half. Salas finished with 10 catches for 191 yards and a touchdown and now has 4,000 career yards, a first for a UH player.
