Aztecs 55, Hawaii 0

While the score was impressive, so was 41,000+ in the seats.  A trend?  Here’s hoping.

The Aztec defense holds Hawaii to 48 yards rushing, 215 total yards and 5/16 on third downs.  Insult to injury:  8 punts.  Oh yeah, the two Hawaii quarterbacks were a combined 25/45 with 4 interceptions.  Third and fourth depth chart Aztecs stopped a fourth quarter drive as well.  Rocky was most pleased.  Returning to the 4 interceptions, those errant passes generated 109 yards of “offense” for the Red and Black.  The 2 scores were most helpful.

John Baron misses from 51 yards out.  Amazing.  He’s human after all.  2/3 was well done.

Quest Truxton is the Rashaad Penny of punt returns.  Quest seems to dip himself in grease prior to the punt.  Lots of misses.  4 returns for 73 yards speaks of twisting, turning and talent.  Touchdowns are next.

Speaking of Mr. Penny, he rejoins Donnel Pumphrey in the 100+ list.  8/109 (13.5 per carry) while Mr. Pumphrey rushes for 118 yards.  A tip of the helmet to the Hawaii defense.  Donnel’s first quarter effort indicated 200+ yards for the night, but the Rainbow Warriors adjusted nicely.  At least against Donnel.  Juwan Washington continues to impress.  5/48 and 2 scores.  He runs pads to pads.  I’m a fan.

Three to go.  With Nevada’s loss to New Mexico, we are in the MWC championship game on December 3rd.  No time for slippage.

8-1/5-0.
