MARCO GARCIA-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Hawaii takes their offense on the road where they look to reverse their struggles.

Loading Scores

The Hawaii Warriors look to reverse their fortunes tonight following a 69-24 pounding loss last Saturday. BYU QB Riley Nelson is supposed to start, however, freshman Taysom Hill looked to be the better option for this week after Nelson was benched in the middle of last week's 7-6 loss versus Boise State. The Warriors need to find some momentum on their own as they rank 99th nationally in Passing Offense with 197.1 yds/game and 119th in Scoring Defense, giving up a walloping 40.0 pts/game.

Hawaii's Sean Schroeder needs to step up his game as he has been very average with a 59.8% completion rate and a 3:2 touchdown to interception ratio. This will be extremely difficult against a BYU defense that gives up 12.5 pts/game. This game will only be winnable by Hawaii if the Warriors can force turnovers and CAPITALIZE ON THEM. If this does not happen, it's not a question on if BYU will win, it will be more of a question of how much.
