The UNLV Rebels welcome the Hawaii Warriors to Sam Boyd Stadium in week ten action.
The Hawaii Warriors have been struggling to score for a number of years and that’s been the case in 2015. The points were scarce for the Warriors but not for Air Force in a 58-7 defeat that was never in doubt with a 34-0 lead at the half effectively ending this. The Falcons racked up 576 yards while limiting UH to 179 yards with four turnovers and just 15 minutes of possession. With no ground game to lean o the Warriors turned to the air attack but Max Wittek was 10-26 for 123 yards and a pair of interceptions with Ikaika Woolsey went 5-9 for 57 yards while Quinton Pedroza caught four balls for 78 yards with a kick return accounting for Hawaii’s scoring.

If you follow the UNLV Rebels you know the team has shown improvement despite their 2-6 record. The Rebels have dropped three in a row following a 55-27 loss to visiting Boise State as a three touchdown underdog. A 28 point 4th quarter broke open a close contest even though Boise amassed a 705-487 yardage edge with two forced turnovers. UNLV needed a viable rushing attack and found none so the Rebels leaned heavily on their passing. Blake Decker gave the Rebels a shot with 357 passing yards with a pair of interceptions on 29-50 with Devonte Boyd and Aaron Criswell combining for 221 yards on 16 receptions.
The Rainbow Warriors are 0-6 ATS in their last 6 games on fieldturf and are 1-7 ATS in their last 8 games after scoring less than 20 points in their previous game while going 1-6 ATS in their last 7 games after accumulating less than 100 yards rushing in their previous game. The over is 4-0 in Rebels last 4 games in November and is 4-0 in Rebels last 4 games following a SU loss of more than 20 points while going 4-0 in Rebels last 4 vs. a team with a losing record. The underdog is 4-0 ATS in their last 4 meetings and the over is 5-1 in the last 6 meetings while going 6-2 ATS in their last 8 meetings. I think UNLV is up and coming and Hawaii is fading…
