This week two matchup will feature the Oregon State Beavers out of the PAC-12 and the Hawaii Rainbow Warriors out of the Mountain West conference.
These teams have not met since 2014.
Oregon State Beavers
The Beavers got demolished in week one by Oklahoma State. The score to this game was 52-36.
They totaled 448 yards in this game and were actually able to put up a decent amount of points.
They put up 281 yards in the passing game. They were led by Jake Luton, who threw for 251 yards aand three touchdowns. The problem is he only went 23 for 42 (54%).
The running game also had some success as they ran for 167 yards. Jermar Jefferson led the team with 87 yards on 16 carries.
They do have one wide receiver who can make a huge difference in this game. Isaiah Hodgins had 9 catches for 170 yards and two touchdowns against Oklahoma State and I think he could have a monster game in Hawaii as well.
Defensively, the Beavers looked absolutely terrible. They allowed a total of 555 yards. Their passing defense allowed 203 yards and looked decent. However, their rushing defense was shredded from the start and gave up 352 yards on the ground.
The only way Oregon State will hang around in this game is if they can slow down the passing attack from Hawaii. The Rainbow Warriors do not run the ball much, but Oregon State needs to be careful here as well as their run defense is awful.
Hawaii Rainbow Warriors
The Rainbow Warriors beat the Arizona Wildcats in a game that they were double-digit dogs. The final score to this game was 45-38. They played this game in week 0, so they had an entire week to rest and gameplan for the Beavers.
Hawaii torched Arizona, totaling 595 yards of offense. I look for them to have similar success against another very bad defense.
The passing game absolutely killed it in their first game of the season. Colt McDonald threw for 378 yards and completed 29 of his 41 passes. he also threw for four touchdowns, but also had four interceptions.
The running game was much less impressive as they ran for a total of 159 yards. Their leading rusher was Dayton Furuta, who only had 42 yards on the ground and scored one touchdown.
As for their receiving core, Cedric Byrd III put on a show. He had 14 catches for 224 yards and four touchdowns.
As an offense, Hawaii turned the ball over a total of six times. This is unacceptable and could cost them the game if it happens again.
Defensively, Hawaii also looked pretty bad, allowing a total of 539 yards. They were hurt the most in the passing game, which should worry bettors on how they will perform against the Beavers. To be fair, the Arizona quarterback is better than the Beavers’ quarterback, so Hawaii should be able to limit him just enough. They especially need to slow down the top Oregon State wide receiver or this one could get out of hand quickly.
One positive sign was their defense forced two interceptions. Look for them to create some turnover opportunities against Oregon State to create a short field for their explosive offense.
