Keys to the game:
SDSU: Get them while they're down
Hawaii's offense hasn't clicked on all cylinders yet this year. Quarterback Ikaika Woosley has completed less than 50 percent of his passes in four out of six games this season. Running back Joey Iosefa had a great first game, gaining 143 yards on 30 carries. But he injured his ankle in week two missed the next four games. And now Iosefa, Hawaii's top running back and the man who beat up the Aztecs for 150 yards last year, will be suspended three games after getting a DUI last Sunday. If SDSU's defense can keep a weakened Hawaii offense down, it should win this game handily.
Hawaii: Flex your strength
This will be a big-time challenge for the Rainbow Warriors, pitting their 37th-ranked rush defense against SDSU's 25th-ranked rush offense. If Julian Gener and this Hawaii defensive front can neutralize Donnel Pumphrey and Chase Price, it'll force SDSU to pass the ball--and that's how Hawaii can win this game. SDSU freshman quarterback Nick Bawden has shown he isn't ready for game-time action and senior Quinn Kaehler looked hampered by his shoulder injury when he played against New Mexico. If Kaehler is still injured, coach Rocky Long will have to choose between the lesser of two evils tonight.
