The Cal Poly Mustangs are one of the worst offensive teams in the country, as their field goal percentage is outside of the top 300 and the against the spread numbers aren't pretty. Hawaii is a much better team at home than on the road, as it feeds off the crowd in their small gym and can really get hot offensively. Hawaii has also won the last five meetings against Cal Poly, with the last four being decided by nine or more points. Give me the Rainbow Warriors by double digits here.
