The Hawai'i Rainbow Warriors and UNLV Rebels meet Saturday in college football action at Sam Boyd Stadium.
The Hawai'i Rainbow Warriors look for a win after splitting their last eight games. The Hawai'i Rainbow Warriors have split their last four road games. Cole McDonald is completing 63.7 percent of his passes for 2,796 yards, 25 touchdowns and 12 interceptions. McDonald has four touchdown passes in four of his last nine games. Cedric Byrd II and JoJo Ward have combined for 1,666 receiving yards and 19 touchdowns while Jared Smart has 52 receptions. The Hawai'i Rainbow Warriors ground game is averaging 147.8 yards per contest, and Miles Reed leads the way with 569 yards and six touchdowns. Defensively, Hawai'i is allowing 36.4 points and 451 yards per game. Solomon Matautia leads the Hawai'i Rainbow Warriors with 50 tackles, KK Padello has three sacks and Ikem Okeke has three interceptions.
The UNLV Rebels need a win after losing seven of their last eight games. The UNLV Rebels have lost their last three road games. Armani Rogers is completing 51.9 percent of his passes for 393 yards, two touchdowns and three interceptions. Rogers and Kenyon Oblad have combined for 14 touchdowns and nine interceptions. Randal Grimes and Noah Bean have combined for 887 receiving yards and eight touchdowns while Steve Jenkins has 18 receptions. The UNLV Rebels ground game is averaging 162.8 yards per contest, and Charles Williams leads the way with 876 yards and eight touchdowns. Defensively, UNLV is allowing 34.4 points and 427 yards per game. Rayshad Jackson leads the UNLV Rebels with 71 tackles, Bryce Jackson has two sacks and Javin White has two interceptions.
The Rainbow Warriors are 18-44-1 ATS in their last 63 conference games, 4-11-1 ATS in their last 16 road games and 17-41-2 ATS in their last 60 games overall. The Rebels are 1-3-1 ATS in their last 5 conference games, 3-1-1 ATS in their last 5 home games and 13-3-1 ATS in their last 17 games following a ATS loss. The Rainbow Warriors are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 meetings and the over is 5-2 in the last 7 meetings. The under is 4-1 in Rebels last 5 games overall. The over is 5-0 in Rainbow Warriors last 5 games overall.
The Hawai'i Rainbow Warriors are 1-6 ATS in their last seven games as a road favorite. The UNLV Rebels are 4-4 ATS in their last eight games as a home underdog. Hawaii continues to put up impressive offensive numbers no matter who the quarterback is, and that's got to provide a ton of confidence as the Warriors head down the home stretch. UNLV just can't get out of its own way and six of its seven losses this season have been decided by double digits. I don't like Hawaii on the road as much as I do at home, but UNLV simply doesn't have the offside firepower to match Hawaii if these numbers continue. I'll eat the touchdown.
