Fresno State vs. Hawaii: Game Preview With TV Schedule

+Read full article
Fresno State

Cary Edmondson-USA TODAY Sports

The Fresno State Bulldogs are one of those teams that could put up big numbers and surprise some teams while going somewhat unnoticed in 2013. The Bulldogs are new to the top-25 this season and sit at 3-0, coming off a win against Boise State in week four.

On the other side of the field, the Hawaii Warriors are one of the worst overall teams in college football this season, sitting at 0-3 and ranking near the bottom of the nation in nearly every offensive and defensive category. However, there is always room for an upset when you’re playing at Hawaii.

Fresno State is led by Derek Carr at quarterback who is playing phenomenal this season. The senior is completing 69 percent of his passes while throwing for 1,121 yards and 12 touchdowns and he has thrown just one interception through three games. He has two main targets in Isaiah Burse and Davante Adams who have combined for 58 catches for 598 yards and five touchdowns. This pass game is scary — that’s why it’s ranked sixth in the nation.

Hawaii’s offense is not as talented as the Bulldogs’. Quarterback Taylor Graham left the team’s game Saturday against Nevada with a shoulder injury and is questionable for week five against the Bulldogs. He has been less than successful this season with just 380 passing yards and four interceptions with just two touchdowns. Oh yeah, and his completion percentage is just over 46. The offense is one of the worst in the nation for the Warriors.

Defensively, the Warriors aren’t much better than they are offensively. Hawaii has allowed over 30 points per game and has not held a team under 300 yards in any game this season. Fresno State’s defense is also almost non-existent as it allows 38.7 points per game. This could be the game that Hawaii breaks the 15-point mark.

Fresno State will travel to Hawaii to take on the Warriors at 12 a.m. EST on Sunday, Sept. 29. Check you local listings for the late game broadcast.

PREDICTION: Fresno State 41, Hawaii 17
