The Hawaii Rainbow Warriors are usually a tough out at home, and they have enough decent offense to hang around. However, the San Diego State Aztecs have been the class of the MWC this season, they’re physical in the trenches and their quality defense is going to be the difference here. San Diego State also waxed Hawaii just last year by a score of 34-10. Hawaii just can’t get down and dirty with San Diego State. I’ll lay the touchdown.
