Click Here for the Latest Odds

The Hawaii Rainbow Warriors and San Diego State Aztecs face off on Saturday in a Week 6 college football showdown at Snapdragon Stadium. When these two teams faced off last year, it was San Diego State that secured the 17-10 victory. 

Hawaii comes into this game with a 1-4 record overall and the only win came against a terrible Duquesne team. Hawaii’s last game came against New Mexico State and the defense was awful in that game giving up 45 points. Hawaii still scored 26 points but they really had no chance with the defense. Under center for Hawaii is Brayden Schager and he completed 22 of his 39 passes for 261 yards and a touchdown. Hawaii on the season is averaging 17.6 points while their defense is giving up 45.4 points per game. 

On the other side of this matchup is San Diego State who sits with a 2-3 record overall and they are coming off another loss in the last game. Heading into the 4th quarter, Hawaii was up 13-0, but they then gave up 35 points and that led to the defeat. San Diego State completed only two passes the entire game and they are going to need a more balanced attack here. San Diego State is averaging 19 points while their defense is giving up 25.8 points per game. The offense is ranked 116th in the league, and this is a game where they should try to get to at least 30 points. 

Hawaii is 18-40 against the spread in their last 58 games against a team with a losing record. San Diego State is 5-1 against the spread in their last six home games against a team with a losing road record. The favorite is 7-1-2 in the last 10 meetings played between the two teams. The under is 4-1 in the last five meetings. 

In terms of talent, San Diego State is the better team, but this is too many points to lay with them. This is an Aztecs team that isn’t very good at passing the ball, and they aren’t going to magically start moving the ball up and down the field here. Hawaii might only score 10 points in this game, but that is going to be enough to keep this game close. Back the Rainbow Warriors against the spread.
