In October 1979, I was among the 28,000-plus people in attendance at Aloha Stadium to see the University of Hawaii football team put a beating on Prairie View, 65 to 0. I was 15 at the time, and I wasn’t used to seeing the Rainbow Warriors light up the scoreboard like that. “Wow, 65 points!” I thought. “Hawaii might not ever score this many points again!”
Ten years later, UH and it’s spread offense erupted for 67 points against Utah. Ten years after that, June Jones and his run-and-shoot attack arrived. From that point forward, it seemed like the Rainbow Warriors would score 60-plus points every other game. In 2001, of course, Hawaii dropped 72 against BYU – that’s the current program record.
We thought it would be fun to look at the team scoring records for several UH athletic programs. And we wonder: Which of these records will be the first to be eclipsed?
