The Hawai'i Rainbow Warriors have been big underdogs this whole tournament, and they've done more than held their own and show they can be a pretty good team worth keeping an eye on. That alone makes me want to back Hawaii and the points yet again. The Fresno State Bulldogs have been hit or miss this season and haven't exactly been consistent on defense. I will take my chances with Hawaii and the points for the third straight game.
