Jason Rivers proved to be the X-factor in this past weekend's game scoring Four Touchdowns for the Warriors in their 52-21 win Saturday over the Vandals of Idaho. The sophomore wide receiver scored three of his four touchdowns during a second quarter surge that put Hawai`i up for good and gave Warriors its fifth straight home win this season. With Chad Owens receiving a lot of double coverage, the offense needed someone else to keep the chains moving and make the big play. Jason Rivers not only stepped up, but he scored more points than the entire Idaho offense could muster. Time after time Rivers lost his defender finding himself wide open and Timmy Chang had no problem delivering. Rivers finished the game with 9 catches for 167 yards and 4 Touchdowns. Rivers tied the UH Touchdown Receptions for a Game Record with Four and was also named the WAC Offensive Player of the Week.

The "Shoot" seemed to had lost it's juice and resorted to short completions and screen plays to generate any progeression down the field while the "Run" seemed to be the most productive element behind Michael Brewster and West Keliikipi. The real question directed at the Run 'n Shoot was who could Timmy Chang look to to provide a lift for offensive unit?
