HONOLULU -- Bryant Moniz threw for 395 yards and six touchdowns -- tying a school record for most touchdown passes in a half -- as Hawaii trounced Charleston Southern 66-7 Saturday night.
Greg Salas had seven catches for 131 yards and two touchdowns.
Hawaii (2-2) scored quickly, racking up three touchdowns in the first 11 minutes of play. The Warriors pulled Moniz midway through the second quarter but reinserted him briefly in the third.
Moniz tied the school record shared by Colt Brennan -- the 2008 sixth-round draft pick for the Washington Redskins -- and current Warriors offensive coordinator Nick Rolovich. Moniz also ran for a touchdown.
John Hardy-Tuliau had six tackles for the winners.
Hawaii's win comes as the Warriors recover from a tough two-week road trip in which they edged Army 31-28 but lost 31-13 at Colorado, where they were outscored 31-3 in the second half.
The Warriors last lost to an FCS team in 2000, when Portland State beat them in the season opener.
The Buccaneers lost their only other game against Hawaii, 66-10 in 2007.
