HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - The Rainbow Warriors defeated Nevada 38-17 on Saturday to earn their first win in conference since 2014.
It was Nick Rolovich's first time meeting his old team since leaving his post as an offensive coordinator for the Wolf Pack after last season. With all of his inside information of Nevada, and an extra week to prepare, Hawaii dominated on their home field from beginning to end.
UH's new starting quarterback, sophomore, Dru Brown, shined against the Nevada defense. He completed 15 of 18 passing for 222 yards and threw his first two touchdown passes of the season without an interception.
Running back Diocemy Saint Juste led the ground attack with 205 yards on 19 carries.
Hawaii's defense held the Wolf Pack to just a field goal until the fourth quarter. Junior linebacker, Russell Williams Jr. led the Rainbow Warriors with 12 tackles, eight of them solo efforts, and one for a loss.
