HONOLULU (AP) — Bryant Moniz ran for a career-best 121 yards and three touchdowns and Hawaii beat Colorado 34-17 in the season opener for both teams Saturday night, extending the Buffaloes’ road woes and spoiling the coaching debut of Jon Embree.
Moniz, who had just 102 yards rushing in 2010 while leading the nation in passing, rushed for 120 yards and two TDs in the first half alone. He also threw a 22-yard touchdown pass to Joey Iosefa in the fourth quarter to help seal the victory for the Warriors.
Meanwhile, the road losses keep mounting for the Buffaloes, who made their debut as a member of the Pac-12. It was Colorado’s 18th straight loss on the road, 19 counting the 2007 Independence Bowl.
