Hawaii Rainbow Warriors
The Rainbow Warriors enter this weekend’s contest sporting an 8-5 record that ranks them 2nd in the Mountain West conference. With a 5-3 record in conference play, Hawaii found themselves near the top of the West division. Although they hit a 4-game losing streak near the end of the season, Hawaii was able to rebound by winning the last two games of the schedule consecutively. Now they look to add another win to this year’s resume by taking care of Louisiana Tech in the Hawaii Bowl. Looking over the numbers, it’s clear this one is a tossup. Right now Hawaii has the better offense as they’re scoring 32.1 per game while Louisiana Tech is putting up 24.2. However there’s no question that the Bulldogs have the better defense as they’re giving up 23.8 while the Rainbow Warriors allot 35.4.
Players to Watch: Cole McDonald (3,790 passing yards, 35 TD, 8 INT), Dayton Furuta (450 rushing yards, 2 TD, 5.0 AVG), and John Ursua (1,343 receiving yards, 16 TD, 89 REC).
Louisiana Tech Bulldogs
The Bulldogs pounce into this weekend’s Rainbow Bowl matchup sporting a 7-5 record. With a 5-3 record in C USA play this season, Louisiana Tech found themselves ranked second in the West Division. Despite a season long of success, the Bulldogs closed out the year with an extremely disappointing 1-3 record in their final four games. Now they have an opportunity to right that wrong and close out the year with a thrilling Bowl Game victory. Although the program is 2-8 in their last 10 meetings versus Hawaii, the Bulldogs are confident they can turn over a new leaf this Saturday.
Players to Watch: J’Mar Smith (2,875 passing yards, 14 TD, 9 INT), Jaqwis Dancy (610 rushing yards, 9 TD, 5.6 AVG), and Adrian Hardy (1,052 receiving yards, 6 TD, 69 REC).
