On this date in 1994, Hawaii’s defense stepped up after going down in class.
The Rainbows sacked the quarterback 10 times on 27 passing plays and Hawaii beat Southeast Missouri State 34-0 in front of the smallest Aloha Stadium crowd in five years (22,891).
The Indians were a I-AA program that had never played a Division I foe. But that was okay, since Hawaii was trying to snap a five-game losing streak.
Ed Ripley, David Tuifua and George Noga doubled up on sacks against Southeast Missouri State and Coby Stewart, Junior Faavae, Jeff Bredy and Punahou Aina each contributing one.
