Oregon Ducks Pummel Hawaii Rainbow Warriors in an Absolute Blowout Game

It’s during games like these where you wonder how such momentum can ever slow down. The Ducks are back for game 3 against the Hawaii Rainbow Warriors, and oh boy was it an absolute slaughterhouse on the field.

It’s a welcome relief for Ducks fans after the struggle back and forth that was the game against Texas Tech. While it’s not as record-breaking as their first game, it’s still a stellar game that fans will be remembering for quite a while.


Oregon vs. Hawaii Football Game Highlights


By the end of the first quarter, they were up by 24-0, and once the first half was over, they had a stunning lead of 38-3. They ended up finishing the game with a blowout of 55-10. This leaves them at a solid 3-0 score so far in the season, averaging 58 points per game.

Bo Nix, as per usual, performed great. He got a 21 of 27, ran 247 yards, and scored 3 TDs. Tez Johnson should be proud of himself this time around, as he finally had his first multi-touchdown game with 4 catches, 77 yards, and 2 TDs. 

The Rainbow Warriors had a run-n-shoot offense, but it wasn’t much of a match compared to the Ducks’ secondary. Their QB, Brayden Schager, was having a hard time getting any passes out throughout the game, and it shows in his stats. In just the first 15 minutes of his plays, he was 3 of 9 for 23 and an interception. This was from someone who came in rocking an average of 324 yards through the air. This game brought him to a season low of 131 yards passing. Talk about quite the fall.

Dan Lanning is said to be quite disappointed at the Ducks finishing with 9 penalties for 76 yards against Hawaii, but it’s still better than the 14 flags given last game. They’ve improved on the penalty front, but they still have quite a ways to go before they can really say they’ve got it down pat.

So, who’s next? Well, Deion Sanders will be welcomed with open arms and a roaring crowd for the first time in Autzen Stadium, carrying behind him the Colorado Buffaloes who are going to have one hell of an uphill battle. The Pac-12 opener is set to take place in the Ducks’ home turf on Saturday at 12:30 PT.
