More noted for its high-powered passing attack, Hawaii took to the ground with a vengeance on Saturday night and the approach paid big dividends.

UH rushed for 227 yards and four touchdowns while atoning for last week’s painful loss at San Jose State by defeating New Mexico State 45-34 on Saturday before homecoming crowd of 30,568 at Aloha Stadium.

Hawaii didn’t totally ignore its vaunted passing attack.  Quarterback Bryant Moniz did throw for 264 yards and two touchdowns.  But Moniz  also contributed 62 yards and two scores with his legs.  Tailback Joey Iosefa had another productive game, rushing for 90 yards and two TD.

The win improved Hawaii’s overall record to 4-3 overall and, at 2-1, UH is one of four teams tied for second place in the WAC standings — a half-game behind 2-0 Nevada, which is coming off 45-38 win over Fresno State.
