HONOLULU (AP) — The University of Hawaii football team was limited to 195 yards of offense — 35 on the ground — in a 28-7 loss to San Diego State on Saturday at Aloha Stadium.

Rashaad Penny ran for a career-high 253 yards and a pair of touchdowns for the Aztecs (7-2, 3-2 Mountain West Conference).

Diocemy Saint Juste ran for 40 yards for UH (3-5, 1-4) — he had been averaging 156.3 per game.

The Rainbow Warriors trailed 14-7 at halftime after Dru Brown scored on a 1-yard quarterback keeper in the final minute of the second quarter, but Penny’s first touchdown run made it 21-7 in the third.

Penny then ran on all six plays of a 99-yard drive in the fourth quarter, the last a 66-yard touchdown run.
