What to Know
Considering their sizeable disadvantage in the spread, the Hawaii Rainbow Warriors can expect to have a real challenge on their hands on Sunday. They will stay at home another week and welcome the Western Kentucky Hilltoppers Sept. 4 at Clarence T.C. Ching Complex. WKU should still be riding high after a win, while the Rainbow Warriors will be looking to right the ship.
Hawaii was pulverized by the Vanderbilt Commodores 63-10 last week. Hawaii was down 56-10 at the end of the third quarter, which was just too much to recover from.
Meanwhile, WKU beat the Austin Peay Governors 38-27 last week.
Hawaii’s loss took them down to 0-1 while Western Kentucky’s victory pulled them up to 1-0. The Western Kentucky defense got after the quarterback against Austin Peay to the tune of five sacks, so Hawaii’s offensive line better have put in some good practice this past week in preparation for the game.
