Hawaii enters the game next Saturday at 1 - 1. They were able to hold on yesterday against Army for a 31 - 28 win after jumping ahead 21 - 0 in the first half. Army was able to rush for 250 yards against the Warriors who are in the middle of an interesting road trip. The Buffs might catch a break as Hawaii landed in Newark, N.J., last Wednesday after traveling a school-record 4,955 miles on the first leg of a 13-day trip. The Warriors fly to Las Vegas for a week's stay before playing in Boulder Saturday.
Hawaii, as should be expected from past history, makes their living offensively through the air. Against Army, the Warriors ran the ball 11 times for 10 yards but threw 37 times for 343 yards. That is an impressive 9.3 yards per pass.
Against Army, Hawaii QB Bryant Moniz threw for 343 yards and 3 scores completing 69.4% of his passes. His top target is senior WR Kealoha Pilares, who leads the team with 11 receptions, 280 yards and four scores on the year
