Quarterback Bryant Moniz and safety Mana Silva today were named the WAC’s players of the week for offensive and defense, respectively.
After misfiring on six of his first seven passes, Moniz finished 27 of 38 for 326 yards and three touchdowns in a 45-10 victory over Idaho.
Silva had nine tackles and an interception, his team-leading fifth of the season.
Interesting strategy by UH’s Derek Inouchi. He wasn’t sure the WAC would go for a three-peat of linebacker Corey Paredes (15 tackles). So he submits Silva’s name. Silva wins. Smart play by Inouchi.
