NCAA Football Preview - Hawaii Rainbow Warriors

Hawaii struggled to produce an offense that could compete, particularly in the early going when it was being outscored by a combined 94-36 against the likes of USC, Oregon State and Nevada. However, in the first Mountain West Conference home game in late September the squad actually threw a scare into nationally-ranked Fresno State, before dropping a 42-37 final.
