It has been an up and down season for the Aztecs. After dropping a game to Stanford, the Aztecs won six straight with a backup quarterback Ryan Agnew and several backup running backs after quarterback Christian Chapman sprained his MCL and Juwan Washington broke his collarbone.
After the long sequence of nail biting wins including one against ASU and another at Boise State on the blue turf, the Aztecs then gave up three out of four games, losing to Nevada, a lackluster UNLV, and formidable Fresno State. In doing so, the Aztecs forfeited their chance to make the Mountain West Championship. The Aztecs have been unpredictable.
The Rainbow Warriors have managed a winning season and bowl eligibility, but they’ve struggled against the run and sit at No. 11 on the conference leaderboard and at No. 105 nationally with an average of 206.1 rushing yards allowed per game. Hawai’i has allowed 4.95 yards per carry, which ranks 105th, and 30 rushing touchdowns- more than any MWC defense and 11th most in the country.
The Rainbow Warriors have allowed 35.8 points per game, which ranks 11th in the conference, 111th in the country and most among all FBS teams with a winning record. Tackling powerhouse Jahlani Tavai is out with an injury.
The Aztecs will be able to run successfully against the Bows, and while it’s doubtful they’ll cover the spread the Aztecs ought to secure the victory on senior night.
