The University of Hawaii Warrior football team will head to Washington to face the Huskies this Saturday. This will be the second PAC 12 (formerly the PAC 10) opponent the Warriors have faced this year, with Hawaii already rolling over Colorado in the season opener. Kick-off is 12:30 p.m. PT (9:30 a.m. HT) at Husky Stadium.
This game marks the first in a long 11-day road trip that will test the Warriors with two non-conference road games. UH will travel to Nevada to play UNLV in the second game of this road trip.
The Warriors (1-0) defeated one of the Pac-12’s newest members, Colorado, 34-17 last week in Honolulu. UH led 17-0 at the half and withstood a Buffalo comeback by scoring the game’s final 10 points for its first season-opening victory over a BCS conference opponent since 1997 and ninth win over a BCS team since 2003.
Quarterback Bryant Moniz led Hawai’i with 299 yards of total offense and four touchdowns, including a career-best 121 yards on the ground and three scores, in earning Western Athletic Conference Player of the Week honors. This was quite a separation from the norm, as UH fans are used to seeing Moniz beat teams with his arm. This added dimension (should it stick around) would be a very useful weapon for the Warriors in their quest to win the WAC during their final year in the conference.
The Washington Huskies barely slipped by a FCS Eastern Washington team that outgained them 473-to-102 through the air. If that is any indication, then Moniz and the Warrior receivers should have a fantastic day.
