The 9,000-seat retro-fitted Clarence T.C. Ching Complex will be the program’s home until the New Aloha Stadium Entertainment District is completed. It was Hawaii’s first home game outside of Aloha Stadium since Dec. 7, 1974 when the Rainbow Warriors hosted Arizona State at Honolulu Stadium, which had served as the team’s home field from 1926-74.

Cordeiro threw touchdown passes to Nick Mardner and Jared Smart, Calvin scored on a wild winding 38-yard run — on which he crossed over into Hawaii territory before racing down the left sideline into the end zone — and Parson ran for a 17-yard TD as the Rainbow Warriors scored touchdowns on their first four possessions to take a 28-0 lead at the end of the first quarter.

Parson added a 2-yard TD run in the third quarter and Dae Dae Hunter, who finished with 128 yards rushing, scored on a 59-yard run in the fourth for Hawaii (1-1).

Davis Alexander threw for 400 yards and three touchdowns for Portland State (0-1), but much of that came after the Rainbow Warriors had the game well in hand.

Cordeiro finished 18-of-25 passing with one interception and had 66 yards rushing.
