Hilo and Konawaena made
sure the debut of Monday night
football in Kealakekua was well
worth the wait.
The Wildcats edged the two-
time BIIF DI champion Vikings
34-27 on a mostly dry night at
Konawaena in a contest that was
postponed because of inclement
weather last week.
“This was a great team win,”
Konawaena head coach Brad
Uemoto said. “A victory over a
great program like Hilo is some-
thing for us to be proud of. It’s
Konawaena (2-0 BIIF DII,
4-0 overall) quarterback Austin
Ewing racked up 340 yards
and two touchdowns on 25 of
39 passing, and running back
Algene Kelekolio added 50 yards
and two touchdown runs.
Dual-threat Vikings (1-1 BIIF
DI, 1-4 overall) quarterback
Ka’ale Tiogangco provided a
lot of the offense for Hilo. The
junior QB was 17 of 32 passing
for 196 yards and two touch-
downs. He added 87 yards and a
score on the ground.
Momentum was the name of
the game in the matchup of two
BIIF title contenders.
Konawaena didn’t look like it
would come away with much

Braxton Miller has clearly
found a new home at wide
receiver, and No. 1 Ohio
State has found another
dangerous weapon.
Not what the rest of
the college football world
wanted to hear.
Miller scored two touch-
downs—one on a 54-yard
catch-and-run where he
had to tip-toe down the
sideline, the other on an
electrifying 53-yard run
— and the star-studded
Buckeyes began their title
defense with a 42-24 vic-
tory over Virginia Tech on
Monday night.
“I really would have
preferred that third quar-
terback be over compet-
ing for a quarterback job
rather than out there as
an athlete,” Virginia Tech
coach Frank Beamer said
as the Hokies fell to 0-9
against teams ranked No.
1. “I thought he was pretty
Miller made a diving
24-yard reception for his
first catch since moving
to wide receiver, and he
only got better as the night
wore on. His touchdowns
came after the Hokies
had taken a 17-14 lead
into halftime, the long
run including a spin move
that left defenders falling
Wide receiver Michael
Thomas watched it hap-
pen, and said he thought:
“There he goes. That’s
Miller said he set the
defenders up for the spin
move, which allowed him
to run free to the end zone.
“I definitely did. I set
them up,” he said. “I acted
like I was looking straight
but I seen them out of the
corner of my eye.”
And Miller wasn’t
alone in turning heads.
Cardale Jones picked up
where he left off last sea-
son by throwing for two
touchdowns and running
for a third, and tailback
Ezekiel Elliott was virtual-
ly untouched in breaking
off an 80-yard run and
gained 122 yards on just
11 carries.
But it was Miller who
stood out most. The Big
Ten offensive player of
the year as a quarter-
back in 2012 and 2013,
Miller missed last season
with an injury to his right
throwing shoulder. When
he was slow to heal, he
removed himself from the
three-way quarterback
“This kid’s all about the
right stuff and I’m hon-
ored to coach him again
for a fourth year. I love this
guy,” coach Urban Meyer
