3rd Quarter Report

After a tough loss on the road their last time out, Hawaii looks much better today on their home field. They have a bit of a cushion as they currently lead Colorado State 21-10. Hawaii took a big hit to their ego last Saturday, so a victory here would be a pleasant pick-me-up.

Hawaii came into the contest with some extra motivation after the defeat they were dealt the last time these two teams faced off. We'll see if they're able to flip the script or if it'll just be more of the same.

What to Know

Colorado State has enjoyed a two-game homestand but will soon have to dust off their road jerseys. The Colorado State Rams and the Hawaii Rainbow Warriors will face off in a Mountain West battle at 11:00 p.m. ET on Saturday at Clarence T.C. Ching Complex. Colorado State will be hoping to continue their three-game streak of scoring more points each matchup than the last.

Last Saturday, Colorado State earned a 30-20 win over Nevada.

Colorado State got their victory on the backs of several key players, but it was Brayden Fowler-Nicolosi out in front who threw for 245 yards and two touchdowns. Fowler-Nicolosi has been a model of consistency, as he's now posted a passer rating of 70 or better in the last six games he's played.

The rematch might be a little tougher for Colorado State since the team won't have the home-field advantage this time around. We'll see if the change in venue makes a difference.
