The Hawaii Rainbow Warriors and San Diego State Aztecs face off on Saturday in a college football showdown at Qualcomm Stadium.
Hawaii has found success this season and coming into this game they sit with a 2-1 record. This is a Rainbow Warriors squad that has been strong for most part, but in the last game against the University of New Mexico the defense struggled giving up 33 points. Hawaii comes into this game averaging 26.7 points per game while the defense is giving up 27.7 points per game. At quarterback, Hawaii is led by Chevan Corderio at quarterback and coming into this game he has thrown for 749 yards, four touchdowns, and three interceptions. In this game they are facing a defense that can be good and create turnovers so it’s going to be important that the offense takes good care of the ball and make the smart decisions.
On the other side of this matchup is San Diego State who won their first game of the season before losing the last game against San Jose State. Over the last first two games, San Diego State only gave up 13 points total, but in the last game they gave up 28 points and that led to the loss. San Diego State is a run first team averaging 265 yards per game on the ground and in this game they need to control the tempo with their run game. At quarterback, SDSu is led by Carson Baker who has thrown for 561 yards, three touchdowns, and one interception. Trusting the offense might be scary so they need to really have their defense step up in a big way.
The over is 23-9 in Hawaii’s last 32 games played on grass. Hawaii is 8-19 against the spread in their last 27 games against team’s with winning records. The under is 9-3 in San Diego State’s last 12 games as a favorite. The under is 19-7 in San Diego State’s last 26 conference games. Hawaii is 2-5-1 against the spread in their last eight games against San Diego State.
San Diego State was really exposed in the last game and this is a game where Hawaii could pull off the upset. Look for Hawaii’s offense to be good enough to keep this game close and cover the spread.
