The 2006 Hawaii Warriors football team represented the University of Hawaii at Manoa in the 2006 NCAA Division I-Bowl Subdivision college football season. The Warriors tied the school record for most victories in a season with 11, with their only losses coming against the University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa, an undefeated Boise State team that would go on to participate in the Bowl Championship Series and an Oregon State program that won ten games and finished the season nationally ranked. The Warriors finished in second place in the Western Athletic Conference behind Boise State and returned to the Hawaii Bowl after missing out on postseason play in 2005 due to a losing record. The Warriors would go on to defeat the Arizona State Sun Devils in the bowl game by a score of 41-24 to round out one of the school's most successful football seasons ever.

Junior quarterback Colt Brennan returned from a breakout 2005 campaign to put together statistically one of the best seasons of any quarterback in college football history. Brennan would end up setting NCAA single-season records for touchdown passes in a season (58) and passing efficiency rating (185.96) on his way to a sixth-place finish in the Heisman Trophy voting [cite web | url=http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/6700005/ | title=Expanded Heisman Trophy voting results | publisher=msnbc.msn.com | date=2006-12-31 | accessdate=2007-01-02 | language=English | format=HTML] , WAC Offensive Player of the Year honors and numerous All-America honors as well.

2005 Recap

Hawaii finished the 2005 season with a 5-7 record, going 4-4 in WAC play. The losing record was the first for Hawaii since 2000 and the team did not play in a bowl game for the first time since 2002. The 2006 Warriors returned nine starters from an offense that ranked #11 in the nation in total offense while the defense returned six players from a unit that was ranked #102 in the nation under defensive coordinator Jerry Glanville. The 2005 season began with blowout losses versus Southern California and at Michigan State and included heartbreaking defeats at home to Boise State and Fresno State.
