Wisconsin Badgers roll to 28-0 win over Hawaii

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

The Wisconsin Badgers steamrolled a smaller Rainbow Warrior defensive front for more than 300 yards rushing on Saturday, and the University of Hawaii lost on the road in Madison, 28-0. 

Hawaii managed just 15 yards on 18 carries on the ground, averaging less than a yard per carry. Wisconsin ran the ball 54 times, more than doubling the number of passes thrown by quarterback Joel Stave.

“Yeah, they’re a good football team, they really are," Rainbow Warriors coach Norm Chow said after the game. "They handled us up front a little bit.”

Hawaii senior quarterback Max Wittek was 15-of-32 for 189 yards, with no interceptions and no touchdowns. The Rainbow Warriors struggled offensively against Wisconsin's defense in ways similar to their lackluster performance against Ohio State two weeks ago.

Hawaii only worked their way into the red zone once all afternoon, and a missed 49-yard field goal by Rigoberto Sanchez in the third quarter was as close as the Rainbow Warriors came to putting points on the board. 

“We needed to play more consistently on offense, and we didn’t do that," Chow said. "We had a couple of big plays, couple of trick ‘em’s, I guess. They’re good. It’s a good football team.”

Wisconsin possessed the ball for nearly twice as long as Hawaii did on the afternoon.
