The Arizona Wildcats got a major scare last week at home versus the Grambling State Tigers. For most of the game, Arizona was losing, but they clawed their way back in the second half to win 31-21.
Hawaii got on the win column last week taking advantage of FCS opponent Tennessee-Martin.
The Hawaii Warriors are a bad football team.
The Warriors had a decent enough showing against the Cal Golden Bears, then got throttled by the Michigan Wolverines and they barely held on to defeat Tennessee-Martin.
This isn’t a team you should fear.
Senior quarterback Ikaika Woolsey isn’t a very good quarterback. Woolsey has already thrown five interceptions and at least one in every game so far this season.
He hasn’t shown much improvement as his career numbers line up with his numbers to this year.
Junior halfback Diocemy Saint Juste has shown flashes of promise as he ran for over 100 yards against Cal and 92 yards last week against Tennessee-Martin.
Senior halfback Steven Lakalaka has been a nice complementary back as he is running for 5.7 yards a pop.
The 2016 campaign hasn’t started off on the right foot.
The Arizona Wildcats lost a tough one against BYU to start the season and then, seemingly hung over by that defeat, didn’t show up to start the first half against Grambling State.
The Wildcats had to storm back to score 21 points in the third quarter to get by the Tigers. The Wildcats will look to keep that momentum going this week.
The status of Anu Solomon remains unclear at this moment. He struggled against BYU throwing two crucial interceptions and hurt his knee unable to play against Grambling State.
Brandon Dawkins stepped in and was shaky only completing 51% of his passes, but he made up for it with his legs running for 97 yards and two touchdowns.
Either way, I like Arizona to win, but whether or not they cover the spread is another story.

Free Week 3 NCAA Football Prediction
This is a game that doesn’t stick out as a must bet.
Hawaii is terrible and the wheels are getting loose under Rich Rodriguez’s Arizona Wildcat team. However, at home, I do think Arizona will win.
With that said, I don’t trust them enough to think that they are going to cover a spread like this.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Under 63
Gun to my head I would say the Wildcats cover, but I wouldn’t be confident in saying that.
Instead, the under seems like the better play. I don’t see Hawaii’s offense scoring much and I could see Arizona putting up some points, but not enough to go over the total. So, give me the under.
