Two players from the University of Hawaii football had to be carted off the field during their game at Brigham Young University on Friday. Both incidents stemmed from helmet-to-helmet collisions.

The first injury occurred just three minutes into the first quarter when Warriors defensive tackle Geordon Hanohano tumbles to the ground after receiving a blow from a Cougars offensive lineman.

The next injury occurred midway through the first quarter when fellow defensive tackle Siasau Matagiese also had to be escorted off the field after taking a hit to the head.

All in all, it was a tough night for Hawaii as BYU rolled on to a lopsided 47-0 victory. It marked the first time that the Warriors had been shutout since October 3rd, 1988, which spanned 182 straight games.
