Sophomore transfer Dru Brown got his first start at quarterback as Hawaii beat Nevada 38-17 to open up Mountain West play.
Very nice win for the Bows.
Now they need to validate last night’s result by getting a road win at SJSU. A road win would be a big time boost to confidence, which is the key to playing above your level. As luck would have it, SJSU has looked pretty awful this season, so this week’s game is very gettable.
Time for the updated CFB Playoff Picture.

Remember who said Dru Brown should be starting back in August ???
Yes, I clearly remember. You called it long before he even saw the field.
GREAT WORK WARRIORS! It’s still a long road yet!. But take one game at a time! Do it again this weekend at San Jose State! GOOD LUCK WARRIORS! It’s getting cooler in mainland and even Las Vegas! Better then 104° to 114° in the day. And night 98° or 103°!. Glad to live in Hawaii!
Like myself and many others said we would really see what this team was made of once the conference schedule started. What a great win, started to tail off a little at the end but for the most part end to end good game! Dru Brown looking good so far. Seems as though this was the plan all along to bring him along slowly rather than start off with Cal, Michigan and Arizona. Lets see what they can do on the road. Like Coach Rolo said they have to change the mentality of the team.

GO WARRIORS! Now their have won a Mountain West game! We all must attend to they’re home games for support! Plus all of us who are here to write about them!. At Homecoming Game against UNLV let’s surprise the team and coaches!. Let’s filled up Aloha Stadium 50,000 plus! Not 23 000 it won’t help!. If not University of Hawaii football program should reschedule their home games at their campus field! Because a lot’s of recruit do see or read this!. One of two large Stadium that holds over 50,000 fans in the Mountain West. That only less then 23,000 show up to the games. Because on their mind they would wonder why should, I come here on a scholarship! If not one will support the team!
