The Hawaii Warriors make the long trek to Laramie to face the Wyoming Cowboys.
Hawaii football hasn't had a whole lot to cheer about the past several years and really nothing this season as they bring an 0-10 record in to week 13. The Warriors have been competitive with several games played close to the vest but making the big play to erase that goose egg in the win column hasn't happened. UH had San Diego State on the ropes in week 12 but dropped a 28-21 overtime decision with the Aztecs tying the score with minutes left in regulation before failing to score in the extra session. Hawaii struggled to move the ball through the air but Joseph Iosefa came up big on the ground with 150 yards on 37 carries with a TD. The UH passing attack struggled with Sean Schroeder going 18-36 for 194 yards with two TD's and a pick.

I don't know where Wyoming stands on the list as far as disappointments goes but they have been lack luster at best over the second half of the season. This has hardly looked like the team that took Nebraska to the brink as they have dropped four in a row after Boise State plastered them 48-7. The lone bright spot came early with the Cowboys taking a 7-0 lead on their first drive but struggled there after with only 265 yards while the Broncos totaled 524 split between the ground and air. The Pokes mustered around 60 rushing yards and even the passing of Brett Smith fell well short. Smith connected on 27-39 for 207 yards with the lone touchdown and a pair of interceptions as the Boise secondary laid in wait with no running attack to worry about.
If Hawaii succeeds it's usually through the air while Wyoming has running and throwing ability. I don't have an explanation for the Cowboys right now and I'd be cautious backing them...
