Rainbow Warriors shut out for third time in 2015, lose 55-0 against Boise State

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

After winning their previous two games by a combined score of 108-14, the Boise State Broncos continued their streak of big-time blowouts by blanking the University of Hawaii by a score of 55-0 on Saturday. 

The Rainbow Warriors, who managed just 170 yards of total offense, were shut out for the third time in five games, each in a loss coming away from Aloha Stadium. The last time the Rainbow Warriors were shut out three times in the same season was nearly 50 years ago, in 1966.

Quarterback Max Wittek was 7-of-24 for 66 yards and two interceptions, but suffered an injured knee near the end of the first half and returned to the sideline wearing street clothes to begin the third quarter. Backup quarterback Ikaika Woolsey was 4-for-14 passing, for 22 yards and one interception. 

Boise State freshman quarterback Brett Rypien, nephew of one-time NFL quarterback Mark Rypien, went 19/25 for 271 yards and three touchdowns. The Broncos managed 554 yards of total offense on the night and did not turn the ball over. Hawaii committed 4 turnovers.

After consecutive road games, the Rainbow Warriors return to Aloha Stadium on Saturday for a game against the San Diego State Aztecs. With Saturday's loss, the Rainbow Warriors' overall record in Mountain West conference place drops to 4-21 (.160), with all games being played under head coach Norm Chow.

Boise State’s win streak against Hawaii now stands at five games, with each win against UH coming after Colt Brennan's Sugar Bowl team defeated the Broncos back in 2007.
