The Army Black Knights and Hawai'i Rainbow Warriors meet Saturday in week 14 college football action at Aloha Stadium.
The Army Black Knights look for a third straight victory to become bowl eligible. The Army Black Knights have lost three straight road games. Kelvin Hopkins Jr. is completing 43.1 percent of his passes for 501 yards, four touchdowns and four interceptions. The Army Black Knights have 13 touchdown passes dating back to last season. Camden Harrison and Artice Hobbs IV have combined for 666 receiving yards and four touchdowns while Brandon Walters has four receptions. The Army Black Knights ground game is averaging 302.6 yards per contest, and Kelvin Hopkins Jr. leads the way with 619 yards and seven touchdowns. Defensively, Army is allowing 19.6 points and 323.8 yards per game. Cole Christiansen leads the Army Black Knights with 99 tackles, Elijah Riley has four sacks and Ryan Velez has two interceptions.
The Hawai'i Rainbow Warriors look for a fourth straight victory to win at least nine games for the 12th time in school history. The Hawai'i Rainbow Warriors have won five of their last seven home games. Cole McDonald is completing 64.8 percent of his passes for 3,151 yards, 26 touchdowns and 13 interceptions. McDonald has four touchdown passes in four of his last 11 games. Cedric Byrd II and JoJo Ward have combined for 1,816 receiving yards and 19 touchdowns while Jared Smart has 68 receptions. The Hawai'i Rainbow Warriors ground game is averaging 149.5 yards per contest, and Miles Reed leads the way with 712 yards and six touchdowns. Defensively, Hawai'i is allowing 31.8 points and 421.9 yards per game. Solomon Matautia leads the Hawai'i Rainbow Warriors with 64 tackles, KK Padello has three sacks and Ikem Okeke has three interceptions.
The Black Knights are 7-2 ATS in their last 9 road games, 9-3-1 ATS vs. a team with a winning record and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 non-conference games. The Rainbow Warriors are 6-21 ATS vs. a team with a losing record, 2-6-1 ATS in their last 9 non-conference games and 19-41-2 ATS in their last 62 games overall. The Black Knights are 0-3-1 ATS in their last 4 meetings. The over is 5-2 in Rainbow Warriors last 7 games overall. The under is 4-0-1 in Black Knights last 5 road games.
The Army Black Knights are 6-3 ATS in their last nine games as a road underdog. The Hawai'i Rainbow Warriors are 2-2-1 ATS in their last five games as a home favorite. Army becomes bowl eligible with a win here and has had an extra week to prepare, but the Black Knights have yet to beat a team with a winning record. The Hawai'i Rainbow Warriors have scored 35 or more points in seven of their last nine games and the trip to the island does weird things to visitors. There's also 24 seniors who will be playing their last home game in this contest. I'll gladly lay the small number with Hawaii at home.
