Hawaii Injuries and Suspensions
Challenges for Army
Hawaii’s struggled the last few years but this year’s Rainbow Warriors looks pretty impressive. Hawaii is 3-0 and averaging over 500 yards offense a game. Army’s going to have to be ready for an offense that can hurt opponents both through the air and on the ground. Hawaii has a very good quarterback in Cole McDonald who hasn’t thrown an interception in 120 pass attempts inclrding 111 attempts this season. The good news is that this game will be played in the friendly confines of Michie Stadium. One advantage Army will have is with the Noon ET start time. That’s 6 am Hawaii time!
Saturday’s game kicks off at Noon ET and can be seen on the CBS Sports Network.
