HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) – The University of Hawaii Rainbow Warriors football team knocked down New Mexico state for the second time this season on Saturday night 48-34.
The rematch with the Aggies was bitter to the end, with the game late into the third game, but Hawaii would pull away to give the 1,000 fans in attendance a win – their first home crowd since 2019.
The ‘Bows move to 4-4 for the season, adding to an already special night where the program officially withdrew the number 15 jersey of the late great Colt Brennan – only the second withdrawn number in team history.
Back on the field, freshman quarterback Brayden Schager would again be the starter under the center for the home team, finishing the game with 25 of his 29 passes for 219 yards.
Despite not throwing touchdowns, the UH Run game was on in full tonight. Dedrick Parson would have a big night on the floor, scoring 161 yards and three touchdowns.
Meanwhile, the UH defense would also add two of their own thanks to a 79-yard interception for a touchdown from Khoury Bethley and another pick six courtesy of Darius Muasau.
Hawaii is next traveling to the state of Beehive to take on the state of Utah next weekend, kicking off Saturday at 9:00 a.m. HST on Spectrum Pay-Per-View.
