CORVALLIS, Ore. -- Jacquizz Rodgers ran for 110 yards and two touchdowns and Oregon State defeated Hawaii 45-7 on Saturday.
Lyle Moevao completed of 20 of 34 passes for 268 yards and three scores for the Beavers (1-2), who were under pressure to get a victory in their home opener before facing top-ranked USC on Sept. 25 before a game at No. 22 Utah the next week.
Rodgers' older brother James also assisted with a 56-yard touchdown catch from Moevao.
Tyler Graunke, Hawaii's third starter this season, injured his thumb and his wrist in the third quarter, coach Greg McMackin said after the game.
Graunke completed 12 of 27 passes for 118 yards for the Warriors (1-2), but threw two interceptions. He was replaced by Inoke Funaki.
Graunke had emerged in Hawaii's victory against Weber State, rallying the Warriors from a 17-7 halftime deficit by throwing three second-half touchdown passes. He was named the Western Athletic Conference offensive player of the week.
Graunke had backed up Colt Brennan for the past three seasons, but was held out of the preseason because of academic issues.
He was hurt a couple of plays before he finally came out, McMackin said.
"He couldn't grab the ball," he said.
The Warriors scored on their first series of the game on Kealoha Pilare's 16-yard run to make it 7-0.
Justin Kahut missed his second field goal after that, but the Beavers rebounded, tying it on Jacquizz Rodgers' 3-yard touchdown run.
Jacquizz Rodgers had a 1-yard touchdown run in the third quarter and After Kahut missed his third attempt, Oregon State tried Sean Sehnemm who connected on a 32-yarder to make it 31-7.
Moevao's 56-yard scoring pass to James Rodgers was his career longest and he added a 1-yard keeper in the fourth quarter to make it 45-7.
Oregon State leads the series over Hawaii 5-3. The Beavers defeated then-No. 24 Hawaii 35-32 on Dec. 2, 2006, the Warriors' last loss at Aloha Stadium.
Hawaii had never played at Reser Stadium.
The Beavers opened this season with losses at Stanford and Penn State. The Beavers hadn't gone 0-3 to start a season since 1996.
