Hawaii answered Ronald Johnson’s punt return touchdown with a 12-play, 84-yard drive, capped off by a one-yard run by Alex Green, cutting the USC lead to 34-23 with 1:54 left in the third quarter.
During the drive, Hawaii quarterback Bryant Moniz was hurt on a hard hit by USC linebacker Michael Morgan. Moniz was hit with what ESPN announcer Bob Davie called “a forearm shiver” by Morgan, and Moniz was down for a few minutes before leaving the game. It is unclear whether or not he will return to the game.
Moniz is 18-for-36 for 269 yards on the night, throwing mostly short passes to his receivers. Moniz has also rushed 11 times for 37 yards.
