Brennan's six TDs lead Hawaii past Northern Colorado

Sep 2, 2007 - 7:22 AM HONOLULU (Ticker) -- Colt Brennan wasted no time making his case for the Heisman Trophy, passing for six touchdowns in the first half, as Hawaii routed Northern Colorado, 63-6, on Saturday.

Brennan, who threw 58 touchdown passes in 2006, threw four TDS in the first quarter and two in the second before being lifted in favor of backup Tyler Graunke at the beginning of the third quarter. Brennan, who threw for 416 yards in the game, extended his NCAA record to 15 career 400-yard passing games.

The senior quarterback, who completed 34-of-40 passes, spread the ball around as six receivers caught touchdown passes and four others had at least one reception. Ryan Grice-Mullen had nine catches for 130 yards and a touchdown and Jason Rivers added five catches for 101 yards and a score to highlight the production from the wide outs.

Rafael Mendoza added to a 42-0 halftime lead, returning a punt 50 yards for a touchdown with 13:08 left in the third quarter. The Warriors visited the end zone twice more in the final quarter.

The Hawaii defense was just as productive as the offense, limiting Northern Colorado (0-1) to 166 yards, adding two fumble recoveries, an interception and eight tackles for loss.

Northern Colorado didn't get on the board until 10:22 left in the fourth quarter, when Mike Vlahogeorge ran the ball in from the goal line.
