Wittek sat out the previous game against New Mexico in which the Warriors fell to the Lobos on a late drive by New Mexico. Starting in his place was Ikaika Woolsey who completed 13 of his 25 passes for 195 yards with a touchdown and two interceptions.
Wittek started the previous six games for Hawaii but his results have not been all that great. He has completed only 44..9 percent of his passes, five touchdowns to eight interceptions and is averaging 162.5 yards per game this year.
Despite the struggles all signs are pointing to Wittek being back under center against the Wolf Pack this Saturday in Reno. Maybe the week off reciverubg will help Wittek have a better game against a Nevada team that has not been that consistent this year.
