Surprise: No Warrior WAC player of the week

Advertiser Staff

University of Hawai'i's winning streak was broken Monday.

For the first time in six weeks, no UH football player was named Western Athletic Conference player of the week.

Over the past weeks, UH quarterback Colt Brennan received three offensive selections, receiver/kick returner Ross Dickerson received two -- one on offense and another on special teams -- and defensive end Melila Purcell received one.

UH players nominated after its 61-17 victory over Louisiana Tech Saturday were receiver Davone Bess (offense) and Purcell (defense).

UH (8-2), winners of seven in a row, hosts San Jose State Saturday at Aloha Stadium. San Jose State is coached by former UH coach Dick Tomey.
