The Hawaii Warriors will try to get back to .500 to finish the year after falling to 3-4 with a 35-24 loss to San Jose State last time out. Chevan Cordeiro has thrown for 1,695 yards, 11 touchdowns and 5 interceptions on 62.3% passing while also leading Hawaii in rushing with 362 yards and 5 touchdowns.

Three additional Hawaii receivers each have 100+ receiving yards this season. On defense, Darius Muasau leads the Warriors with 75 total tackles including a team-high 49 solo tackles as well as a team-high 2.5 sacks while Quentin Frazier and Eugene Ford each have a pair of interceptions for Hawaii’s defense this year.
UNLV is 0-4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall and 0-4-1 ATS in their last 5 games following a loss of 20+ points. The under is 8-2 in Hawaii’s last 10 conference games.
This is a ton of points to be giving up with any team, but the issue is that UNLV really is that bad. I mean the Rebels have lost by more to worse this season and I just don’t see any silver lining for UNLV’s season, especially on the island where travel alone takes its toll on your body. I’ll lay the points with Hawaii in this spot.
