ESPN study: UH offense most “explosive” in nation


It is official: The University of Hawaii football team had the most "explosive" offense in the nation last season.

An ESPN study listed the Warriors as No. 1 in "explosion plays" — defined as offensive plays of 20 yards or more — in the 2010 season.

UH had 103 of them, according to the ESPN study,  far out-pacing national champion Auburn which was second at 86.

"I figured we were one of the top teams, I just didn’t have all the stats," said Nick Rolovich, UH offensive coordinator.

Tulsa (85), Boise State (83) and Oregon (82) rounded out the top 5.

In official NCAA statistics, UH was first in passing offense (394.29 yards per game), sixth in total offense (500.64) and 10th in scoring offense (39.57 points).
