Recap: Hawaii vs. Utah State

Honolulu, HI (SportsNetwork.com) - Kent Myers threw for 186 yards and three touchdowns as the Utah State Aggies crushed the Hawaii Rainbow Warriors, 35-14, in a Mountain West Conference battle at Aloha Stadium

Myers, a freshman who is the fourth different starting quarterback for the Aggies (5-3, 2-1 MWC) this season, converted all but one of his 15 passes on the night for the visitors as they captured their second straight win and the fourth in five tries. Hunter Sharp caught three passes for 77 yards and two TDs and Lajuan Hunt contributed a game-high 150 rushing yards on 33 carries.

The Warriors (2-6, 1-2) were paced by Ikaika Woolsey who threw for 356 yards and a score, converting 26-of-46, but he was sacked six times and intercepted once as the team suffered a third straight setback.

The Aggies opened up the scoring as they took the first possession of the contest 62 yards on nine plays and polished it off with a six-yard TD pass from Myers to Hunter Sharp.

On the ensuing possession, Hawaii marched 64 yards on 11 plays as Diocemy Saint Juste crossed the goal line on an eight-yard run to knot the score at 7-7.

The teams again traded scores later in the first frame as Myers found Sharp for a 70-yard TD, while Woolsey's one-yard scoring strike to Justin Vele at the 2:54 mark of the period again locked the score at 14-14.

The second quarter belonged to USU though, as Devin Centers scored on a 10- yard fumble return and Myers combined with Ronald Butler on a 39-yard TD pass play, leaving the visitors with a 28-14 edge at the break.

The only points of the second half came in the third quarter as Butler threw a 44-yard TD pass to Hunt with 5:11 remaining in the period.

Hawaii, which controlled the ball for only 24:45, hurt itself with 13 penalties that led to a loss of 100 yards. The Aggies were flagged for 12 infractions for 96 yards on their end.

Utah State, which surrendered only 98 yards on the ground, entered the weekend ranked fourth in the nation in run defense, giving up just 89.0 ypg.
