Oct. 27, 2013
- Rams have won back-to-back road Mountain West games for the first time since 2002 (Utah, Air Force, San Diego State).
- Saturday marked CSU's first back-to-back wins under second-year coach Jim McElwain.
- The Rams have defeated FBS opponents in back-to-back weeks for the first time since 2008, when the Rams won three in a row.
- Midway through the first quarter, Donnell Alexander took a handoff from Garrett Grayosn and ran it for a 70-yard gain, the Rams’ longest play from scrimmage this season. This setup CSU’s first TD of the game when Kapri Bibbs scored from five yards out on the very next play. It was Alexander’s longest rush of his career and the longest by a CSU rusher since Nov. 17, 2012 at Boise State (Chris Nwoke – 72 yards).
- Bibbs also scored a 10- and 13-yard touchdown in the second quarter giving him 12 rushing touchdowns on the season. That total is tied for 5th most in a single-season. 12 TDs tie for the most since Gartrell Johnson’s 12 in 2008. In 2002, Cecil Sapp rushed for 17 touchdowns in 2002.
- Bibbs’ 12 rushing touchdowns this season marks the most by a CSU sophomore in program history.
- Bibbs registered 33 rushing attempts Saturday, the most by a CSU running back since Gartrell Johnson’s 30 vs. New Mexico on Nov. 15, 2008.
- Cory James’ second sack of the evening forced the ball loose and junior LB Max Morgan scooped it and returned it 73 yards for a touchdown. The 73-yard return is the third longest fumble return for a touchdown in program history.
- The last Ram defender to “scoop-and-score” was Shaq Bell vs. UNLV on Nov. 10, 2012.
- Morgan finished the game with a career high 15 tackles (12 solo), a PBU and TFL.
- RS-SO DeAndre Elliott recorded his third career interception and first of the season midway through the first quarter. All three of Elliott’s interceptions have come on UH quarterback Sean Schroeder.
- Kevin Pierre-Louis registered his first career interception.
- Crockett Gillmore’s 20-yard touchdown reception at the beginning of the second quarter is his second of the season. Gillmore, a candidate for the John Mackey Award, now has eight career touchdowns.
- The Rams rushed for 231 yards on Saturday, 56 yards over their season average of 175.0 per game.
- The Rainbow Warriors’ 57 pass attempts were the most by a CSU opponent since Houston’s 55 on Sept. 20, 2008.
- CSU defense limited Hawai’i to two third-down conversions out of 17 attempts (11.7%).
- 35 first half points by CSU is the most in a single half since the Rams scored 41 vs. BYU on Oct. 9, 2003. The Rams went on to win 58-13.
- CSU captains were LB Shaquil Barrett, TE Kivon Cartwright, DB Trent Matthews and OL Weston Richburg.
