Sam Boyd Stadium and the UNLV Rebels play host to the Hawaii Warriors Saturday night.
Hawaii has been a team of contrasts through five games were points were difficult to come by through the first three games but plentiful in back to back contests. However, the only number that really counts is the one in the win column which is a zero. The Warriors fell to 0-5 following a 37-27 loss to San Jose State where the balance of the Spartans was stronger then the passing of the Warriors. SJSU moved the ball through both the air and ground while UH received 77 rushing yards from Steven Lakalaka and not much else. Sean Schroeder completed 28-50 for 342 yards with three touchdowns and three picks with Vasquez Haynes catching six passes for 128 yards.

UNLV certainly has the look of an improved team mainly because the offense has more punch then we've seen in quite awhile. The Rebels have rode their scoring to three consecutive victories following a 56-42 shootout win over New Mexico. Fans of offense must have loved this one withthe score knotted 35-35 after 30 minutes before UNLV discovered some defense in the second half. Both teams finished south of 600 yards with New Mexico running for 497 yards while the Rebels were able to both run and throw effectively. Tim Cornett paced the ground game with 179 yards on 25 carries wit three trips to the end zone. Caleb Herring was spectacular in the air, completing 24-34 for 293 yards with four touchdowns and no picks with Devante Davis recording ten receptions for 164 yards and thee TD's.
Schroeder has thrown the ball well but needs to limit mistakes while UNLV has been a handful at home and should be able to run and throw. I don't have a great feel for this one but the Rebels have been scoring and Hawaii has moved the ball lately which has me thinking over...
