What you need to know about Hawaii

There’s no need to mince words: Hawaii got crushed by the Vanderbilt Commodores this past Saturday on their home turf. The final score ended being 63-10. The Rainbow Warriors were down 56-10 at the end of the third quarter, which was just too much to recover from. Their only offensive touchdown came from RB Dedrick Parson.

First-year head coach Timmy Chang is a program legend and will undoubtedly have his team looking to rebound from its disappointing Week 0 performance. The Rainbow Warriors will have to be vastly improved on the defensive side of the ball to notch a win in this matchup. 

What you need to know about Western Kentucky

Meanwhile, the Hilltoppers beat the Austin Peay Governors 38-27 this past Saturday. QB Austin Reed and WR Malachi Corley were among the main playmakers for WKU as the former passed for four TDs and 280 yards, and the latter hauled in three receiving touchdowns.

Western Kentucky has an abnormally long trip to get to Honolulu, so they will have to battle the time zone change and potential travel fatigue. That said, they are a program that enters this matchup in much better shape than its counterpart. If the Hilltoppers come out focused, they will be tough to beat.
