The Paniolo Trophy is on the line at Aloha Stadium on Saturday when Wyoming comes to town to face Hawaii.

The Rainbow Warriors (5-1, 2-0 Mountain West) are coming off an emotional, five-overtime 44-41 win at San Jose State. Wyoming, a power-running team, is 2-3 and 0-1 in the Mountain West, but has faced some very tough competition, losing to Washington State (4-1), Missouri (3-1) and Boise State (3-1).
UH coach Nick Rolovich and running back Fred Holly III gave interviews after Tuesday’s practice to talk about the matchup.

    Should be a tough match up and good game. Hopefully our defense can correct all the mistakes and mistackles from the last game. I think the offensive game plan should feature a heavy dose of Furuta and Holly, to counter Wyoming’s ball control style. Go Warriors!

    Whoever wins the turnover battle will probably win the game.

    (4) 6-7 players
    (5) 6-6 players

    Wyoming is huge.
