Future Mountain West Teams News and Notes: Hawaii @ Nevada This Saturday

Game of the Week: Hawaii Warriors at Nevada Wolf Pack

Big game this week in WAC play as the Warriors head to the mainland to take on the first place Wolf Pack at Mackay Stadium on Saturday. Nevada will be looking to keep Hawaii QB Bryant Moniz under control while Hawaii will be looking to try and slow the 7th ranked Nevada rushing attack. Nevada is coming out of a bye that couldn't have come at a better time with some guys beat up a bit after the New Mexico State Game. Hawaii will be looking to rebound after suffering a crushing home loss to the Utah State Aggies last Saturday. Hawaii has struggled on the road this year and the weather forecast for the game doesn't look to be nice and sunny, more like the opposite.

Opening Line: Nevada by 15

Broadcast: ESPN U 7:15 PST

Nevada Game Preview from RGJ.com

Good preview of the game coming from the Nevada side's point of view. The article goes through each set of positions and takes a look at which team has the advantage over the other and gives some statistical breakdowns of each team. According to the article the two key matchups Saturday are between the Nevada running game and the Hawaii defense, and the battle between the Nevada D-line and Hawaii O-line.

Hawaii banged up heading into Nevada game

Hawaii has been suffering a case of the injury bug lately, and it couldn't have come at a worse time heading into a game they had circled on their schedule before the season. The most significant injuries Hawaii has right now are their two starting wideouts in Royce Pollard and Justin Clapp, both of whom will be unable to go this week. It has been confirmed that Clapp will be gone for the season after fracturing two of his ribs against the Aggies last Saturday, though he may be able to return for a bowl game if Hawaii ends up eligible for one. Not good news for an offense that relies heavily on the pass.
