The Pacific Tigers are the better team on paper and should be favored, but Hawaii is a tough out at home and should take a lot of positives out of its game against Northern Colorado. Hawaii was getting drummed in the first half and made a game of it late. Pacific had issues against that same Northern Colorado team. Hawaii is a feisty team at home. Give me the free buckets.
