History: Hawaii Bowl

hawaii-bowl-photo-1262013.jpg

This currently is the only bowl game played in Hawaii, following the Poi Bowl (1936–39), Pineapple Bowl (1940–41, 1947–52), Aloha Bowl (1982–2000) and the Oahu Bowl (1998–2000). The Hawaii Bowl is not associated with any of these prior bowls.

Not surprisingly, Hawaii has won the game more than any other team -- three times.

Memorable moments

• In 2006, Hawaii quarterback Colt Brennan went 33 of 42 for 559 yards and five touchdowns in his team's 41-24 victory against Arizona State. The big benefactor? Jason Rivers, who had 14 receptions for 309 yards and two scores.

• Tulsa's Samarius Johnson just about did it all for his team in its 62-35 win against Hawaii in 2010. He had five carries for 98 yards and a TD, four receptions for 101 yards and a TD and he made six returns for a total of 127 yards.
