Colorado Takes Down Hawaii 31-13 With A Fantastic Second Half

Boulder, CO (Sports Network) - Rodney Stewart ran for 106 yards and two touchdowns, as the Colorado Buffaloes stampeded the Hawaii Warriors, 31-13 in a non-conference matchup at Folsom Field.

Brian Lockridge also went over the century mark and finished with 109 rushing yards for the Buffaloes (2-1), who were coming off a 52-7 trouncing from California a week earlier. Tyler Hanson completed 19-of-26 passes for 200 yards, throwing one touchdown pass each to Scotty McKnight and Toney Clemons.

Bryant Moniz led Hawaii (1-2) with 330 yards passing and one touchdown. Kealoha Pilares had six catches for 117 yards and a score, while Greg Salas finished with 94 yards on nine catches.

Moniz got Hawaii on the board first with a seven-yard touchdown pass to Pilares in the final minute of the opening quarter.

Hawaii's Scott Enos kicked a 31-yard field goal as time expired in the first half, as the Warriors went to the locker room with a 10-0 lead behind a stout defensive effort.

But Colorado opened the second half with a 14-play, 80-yard drive, which resulted in a four-yard touchdown run by Stewart.

CU cut the deficit to 10-9 at the 10:33 mark of the third quarter, when linebacker Tyler Ahles blew up a play in the backfield for a safety.

The Buffaloes took the lead midway through the third quarter on Stewart's second touchdown run of the day, this time from two yards. CU added a two- point conversion to take a 17-10 lead.

BYU answered with an 11-play, 76-yard drive, but had to settle for three points on a 32-yard field goal by Enos.

Colorado began to pull away in the fourth quarter, as Hansen connected with Toney Clemons for a 73-yard scoring strike to push its lead to 24-13.

The Buffaloes added another score at the 3:12 mark on a 23-yard touchdown pass from Hansen to McKnight to put the game away.

Colorado was able to keep the chains moving by converting 10-of-14 third downs for the game, which yielded nearly an 11-minute edge in time of possession.
