Utah State beats Hawaii

By Star-Advertiser Staff

LAST UPDATED: 02:17 a.m. HST, Nov 03, 2013

A lot was made of Hawaii's difficult flight path for Saturday's Mountain West Conference football game with Utah State in the rarefied air of Logan, but Rainbow Warriors head coach Norm Chow refused to offer it as an excuse.

Arriving only a half-day ahead of kickoff due to the shooting tragedy at LAX on Friday, the Warriors appeared a step slow all day as the Aggies won 47-10 at Romney Stadium.

The victory left Utah State 4-1 in MWC play and 5-4 for the season. Hawaii dropped to 0-8 overall and 0-6 in MWC play. It was the 11th consecutive road loss for the Warriors, who will remain in Salt Lake City, before moving on to Maryland and a nonconference date with Navy.

Down by 20 at intermission, Hawaii took the opening kickoff in the third quarter and drove 75 yards on six plays, including a 33-yard scoring strike from UH quarterback Sean Schroeder to wideout Keith Kirkwood as Tyler Hadden added the PAT to cut Utah State's margin to 13 with 13:17 remaining in the third quarter.

Now, it was the Aggies' turn and they didn't disappoint. Holding a 12-minute advantage in time of possession in the first half, Utah State didn't sway far from the game plan, moving 51 yards on eight plays, before settling for a 32-yard field goal by Nick Diaz, his third of the day to give the Aggies a 16-point advantage with 9:51 left in the third quarter.

The Aggies put the game out of reach on a five-play, 71-yard scoring drive that ended on a 30-yard touchdown pass from Utah State true freshman quarterback Dare Garretson to Travi Reynolds as Diaz added the PAT to make it 33-10 with 6:20 remaining in the third.

Hawaii tried to put a positive spin on things with a beautiful interception by Tavita Woodard off a screen pass and returned it to the Utah State 4. Garretson made a huge touchdown-saving tackle because three plays later, Schroeder threw a pick-six to Kyler Fackrell, who returned it 99 yards for a touchdown as Diaz added the PAT to make it 40-10 with 1:41 remaining in the third.

It was more of the same in the fourth as Utah State drove 73 yards on seven plays for the touchdown as Garretson found tight end Wyatt Houston for the final 44. Diaz hit the PAT to make it 47-10 Utah State with 10:29 remaining in the game.

Utah State dominated from the start as the Aggies took the opening kickoff and went 80 yards on 12 plays -- that included the ejection of UH safety Marrell Jackson for targeting -- the last one an 11-yard touchdown pass from Garretson to wideout Bruce Natson with 9:43 remaining in the first quarter. Diaz added the PAT.

Hawaii responded with a nice 10-play, 58-yard drive of its own that ended with a 33-yard field goal by Hadden with 6:55 left in the first quarter to cut the margin to 7-3. Schroeder was 3-for-5 for 50 yards, including a 35-yarder to Donnie King.

Utah State countered with a field goal of its own on its next offensive series, a 40-yarder by Diaz that extended the Aggies advantage to 10-3 with 5:09 left in the first.

The Aggies moved 14 points ahead on a tough 10-play, 88-yard drive that included two huge third-down conversions and ended on a 4-yard scoring run by running back Joey DeMartino. Diaz added the PAT to make it 17-3 with 14:27 left in the second quarter.

Hawaii moved into scoring territory on a 41-yard pass play from Schroeder to favorite target Chris Gant, but on a third-down play at the Aggies 30, Schroeder was picked off, giving the Aggies the ball at their own 6.

Later in the quarter, Hawaii tried a punt fake on a fourth-and-2, but upback Marc Langkilde came up a yard short, giving Utah State the ball at the Hawaii 44. Once again, a big third-down conversion kept the drive alive and aided the penalty-plagued Aggies as they extended their lead to 20-3 on a 32-yard-field goal by Diaz with 3:28 remaining in the half.

Utah State added three more on a 52-yard field goal by hometown boy Jake Thompson to give Utah State a 23-3 advantage with 50 seconds remaining in the half dominated by the Aggies.

For the game, DeMartino gained 104 yards on 20 carries, offsetting a nice first-half performance by Rainbow Warriors freshman running back Diocemy Saint Juste. He carried the ball six times for 48 yards, giving UH a legitimate running threat on the edge if he can remain healthy. He had only one attempt in the second half

Schroeder, who was lifted in the third, completed 13 of 26 for 213 yards and one score, but was picked three times, including one on the last play of the half that almost resulted in another score for the Aggies.

Garretson set a freshman record at Utah State, completing 28 of 41 passes for 370 yards and three touchdowns. He had the one pick. Reynolds was his favorite target, catching 15 passes for 152 yards. Natson had seven for 34.

 UH wideouts Gant and Billy Ray Stutzmann were held in check. Gant had two catches for 48 yards. Stutzmann countered with two for 31. His streak of games scoring at least one touchdown came to an end. Backup quarterback Taylor Graham came in for Schroeder in the third, but wasn't effective, completing eight of 16 for 45 yards.

He was knocked out of the game late in the fourth and appeared he might have taken a shot on his recently healed left shoulder. The UH offense produced 319 yards. Utah State countered with 533.

@Descartes- Agreed. Graham's "expanded" role is really beginning to pay dividends as he passed for a whopping 45 yards on 16 attempts--for an average of 2.8 yards per completion. The pressures from grad school coupled with the extremely high expectations from an ambitious coach can weigh heavily on a QB as compared to a kid who recently graduated high school, who has no care in the world.

I'm sorry, but Norm chow's offensive schemes are, mildly putting it, offensive. Hawaii doesnt have the ability to run a pro set, drop back passing offensive and how many more games will it take for the agonized audience to rebel. Hawaii, though, showed they can run outside today with ST Juste, (no. 22), and they were successful when shroder rolled out. so why not start to implement more option plays or even install the triple option. we got a QB. woosley who can run, we have st juste, who can take it to the outside and even if we dont go full on triple option we can still get more yards with any kind of QB option. But no!, norm chow wants to run up the middle, where game after game proves we cant open lanes, and then in a frenzy to get the first down we have shroder or graham just throwing so many erratic passes, probably due to the o-line not holding blocks long enough and QB getting hurried. We go into Navy, next week, who with unheralded personnel, almost beat notre dame and led most of the game today. And why not run the option against this option team. Navy ran the option today and even had 2 offensive tackles on the same side of the line on an option touchdown run by the QB. Something else needs to be done to give us a chance to move the ball and not leave the defense on the field all game.

UH will never have great success in recruiting quality D1 players. The only way to compete with the big boys is what June Jones did---a spread offense with precise routes for the receivers. We will never have a successful running game cause we don't have those D1 players. Forget the running game. We will never also have a terrific defensive team cause we can't recruit the good defensive players. The only way to hang with the big boys is to outscore them like we did with the Jones era. If a player, local or mainland, has any potential of going pro, do you think he'll go to UH? Nah...no way. So we got to work with the horses we got. I truly believe that JJones gave us the model to copy. Let's work on bettering that spread offensive scheme . Let's try to also get Rolovich back here and go back to our glory days!!!!!!!!!Go Bows!!!!!!!!!

Since 2000 to 2011 how many players have played in the NFL who played for UH? We had our share. UH will always have their share although few. What's importanat is to find those players just below the radar who can play what they are taught and coached on. Apparently their is a disconnect with the coaches and players somewhere. You may have better talent the last 2 years and it appears the talent cannot be worked into the system. The last 2 years of Mac many have said talent wise was down. However they played and won but not enough to satisfy. Thus bottom line must be the coaches. If not the coaches than the type of players they are recruiting are being made to look and sound like they are more athletic. (Hype)

Not sure what sucks more, the poor play calling or the quality of the coaches in general. In this day and age with money being as tight as it is, and unless the athletic director implements some serious changes for the better, I can't see throwing money away for multiple season tickets year in and year out let alone the cost of inner circle parking one again next year. I do feel sad for the players, they really don't want to lose but take a look at the lack of hustle from the defensive backs and the total lack whom they should be guarding as if they never played football in their life. Think about it, who runs a business like this other than Obamacare!

Next Up: Navy. Earlier today, #25 ranked Notre Dame narrowly beat Navy 38-34 on their own turf. Navy played a hard fought game with 27 first downs against the Fighting Irish with 419 yards in total offense--mostly on the ground--which puts them at 10th in the nation in rushing yards with a 289.1 average. I'm predicting that the Midshipmen will rack up around 400 rushing yards against the Warriors. Hopefully UH will counter with a 400 yard passing performance by our dynamic duo of QBs.

No matter what happens the rest of this season, don't ever give up or put our players down! They're not Pros, they're college kids who go out every day and practice and train and basically do this for all of us here in Hawaii. We have to focus our criticism where it really belongs, coaching. June Jones came in, took an 0-12 team with basically no recruiting to mention, and with these same players went 9-3 his first year. That team won a share the WAC Championship and sent at least two players (that I can remember, there could have been more) to the NFL. They each had pretty long careers in the Pros. What was the difference? COACHING! If we want to stop this spiral down the football drain we have to focus on improving our coaching. It's not rocket science, coaching is the most important ingredient a College FB Program needs to be successful. I know it hasn't been two full years since we brought Coach Chow on board, but come on, is there anybody out there who really believes things are going to turn around in the next 1-2 years. UH has to dig deep and find the courage to face reality and make a change NOW! Not one or two or three years from now when it's too late to turn things around. Our FB program should never have fallen this low just because we lost JJ, that's not acceptable. Go Warriors!

Just shows you that Chow and Jay are not true leaders, just wannabe leaders who got hired because of friends in connected places and use of affirmative action to make a political statement.

Whoever said we have to do what JJ did is right. Chow is trying to Fit a square in a round hole. If they retain Chow he has to change offense and spread it and throw it. We're not going to Sugar Bowl again but maybe some winning seasons. Pro set is great if you have the talent, speed and size but we don't. BG you have to see this and turn it around or take a step down in divisions and we will retain a lot of local talent who can play in a lower division. Once we can earn a championship who care what division. Forget the body bag games with the likes of USC, Florida, etc.

When June Jones came to Hawaii with his run and shoot, Coach JJ took Hawaii to the BCS bowl. A Hawaii football team under June Jones beat Michigan State, Arizona State, Houston and other high ranking team at Aloha Stadium. So False you are False to say our football team cannot compete with the big boys. Washington Huskies and Oregon State come to town next year and our Warriors go on the road to play Ohio State and Wisconsin in 2015. Very hopefully we will have a new "Real Football Coach" to revive Hawaii football again.

agree. UH will never attain the level of an Alabama however reaching the level of a Boise State is within reach with the right leadership leading the team. Success breeds success and failure reinforces failure. Stop blaming the players as having lack of talent as some of the best Div 1a Nd NFL players come from Hawaii. Give these players and their parents. reason to play in Hawaii for their friends and families AND a chance in the NFL if they are good enough. However right now it is best they go far away from Hawaii while Chow drags the once proud team into the depths of patheticness

Its tough to say that its not time for a coaching change, because despite what a lot say, its the lack of quality players as well...but then again, that goes on the coaching staff for not recruiting and not developing...so tough to say, after all if the players could execute better...maybe there would be different outcomes. However, its becoming more and more clear to me that a young and hungry new ball coach is needed, its probably what the school can afford anyway.

Chow's program & so called "coaching" is just ridiculously sad --- I really feel for the players for all their hard work and dedication---the players have nothing to be ashamed of.

Look at the Rainbownetwork blogs. .. Everyone wants Norm Chow be FIRED. . not later, but now. Our Warriors are now 0-8 on their way to 0-12 for this season. Next week they head for Navy on the east coast and face another blowout against the middies. Norm Chow was BYU's head coach legend Lavell Edwards for many years to taking the Cougers to many bowl game and high ranking. So when Lavell Edwards retired, common sense would tell you, Norm Chow would be the logical choice as Lavell Edward's replacement. But that didn't happen. Was it because Norm Chow is "non-white". He is part Chinese. I believe, so do many, Norm Chow was not selected to replace Lavell Edwards because he is not Head Football Coach material. He is a legend of a Offensive Corrdinator, but he was not born to be a head coach. Ben Jay (UH AD) if your reading this, FIRE NORM CHOW IMMEDIATELY.

Compare Fresno State to us, We were pretty equal to them..we won some,they one some. We both fire our coaches for being so so, not excellent. They make the right choice and takes Fresno in a direction we would kill for no excuses. We wind up with a loser who everyone has a million excuses for. Why can Fresno do what they did and we can't. Wrong coach who threw away Rich Milano and Nick Rolovich because be knew better. Norm do the honorable thing and resign

We're getting a lot better at recruiting and getting better quality kids so I have to say it must be the coaching.
