>> Great turnout of former players for UH football homecoming tonight.
>> One of the most popular figures in the program’s history, Nick Rolovich, still gets excited about Aloha Stadium … even as offensive coordinator of the opposing team. Got to chat with him a few minutes before the game.
“The main thing I’m concerned about is getting a win here,” he said. “But, yes, coming through that tunnel is still a great feeling.”
>> Tonight’s key matchup could be the Nevada offensive line against the UH defensive line. This looks like an advantage for the Rainbow Warriors in experience and skill; two years ago when UH did not have NT Moses Samia due to injury, Nevada ran all over Hawaii in a 69-24 win.
>> People keep asking me why Nevada is only favored by 2 1/2 points. The only answers I come up with are that Hawaii’s defense and special teams are pretty good, and Vegas loves UH at home.
