HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - The Rainbow Warriors toppled Duquesne, 24-14, on Saturday night in Manoa to clinch their first win of the season on homecoming night.

It was also the first win for new head coach Timmy Chang.

UH football hosted the Dukes at the Clarence T.C. Ching Athletics Complex in Manoa.

The ‘Bows added to their lead in the second half of the game after a scoreless third. The defense had three takeaways, two courtesy of Malik Hausman.

The Dukes, meanwhile, cut the deficit down late in the game. But it was too little, too late.

This was the second meeting between the two squads.

The Dukes — which just won their first game of the season last week — took a trip to Honolulu in 2018. It was a 42-21 win for UH at Aloha Stadium.

Historically, the ‘Bows have won their last four homecoming games, but this year’s game also marks the earliest Hawaii has played their homecoming game.

The ‘Bows look to bounce back after falling to 0-3 on the season last week in a 56-10 loss to No. 4 ranked Michigan in Ann Arbor.
