HONOLULU – The Hawai’i football team opened the 2022 season with a 63-10 loss to Vanderbilt in a nonconference game before a sold-out crowd at the Clarence T.C. Ching Complex Saturday.
A pair of costly turnovers and a big third quarter by the Commodores was the difference in the first Hawai’i season opener played before fans since 2019. Vandy scored touchdowns twice on fumble returns while outscoring the Rainbow Warriors 35-0 in the third quarter to put the game away.
The ‘Bows struck first with an eight-play, 75-yard opening drive capped off by a Dedrick Parson 37-yard touchdown run. Sophomore quarterback Brayden Schager went 4-for-6 for 35 yards on the drive, highlighted by a big third-down completion to senior wide receiver Zion Bowens to set up the Parson run two plays later.
