We have reached week two of the college football season with a full slate of games on Saturday. The last game to kick off takes place at Aloha Stadium to take on the Rice Owls and Hawaii Rainbow Warriors.
Rice has won the last two games played between the two teams but they haven’t faced off since 2014.
This is only the second week of the college football season officially but the Rice Owls have already played two games and they haven’t looked like a team that is going to have much success this year.
They started off the season facing Praire View a team they were favored to beat by 23 points but the offense struggled more than it should have and they only won by three.
In the second game they took on the Houston Cougars and the defense couldn’t slow them down and they gave up 45 points on the way to a loss.
The Owls defense is giving up 482.5 yards per game and that isn’t a good sign going against a Rainbow Warriors team having no issue running up the score.
In this game the Owls defense is going to need to be strong. They aren’t going to stop the Rainbow Warriors offense but they need to try and contain them.
On the other side of this matchup is Hawaii Rainbow Warriors who have been one of the most surprising teams of the year so far.
They have also played two games so far this year, both games they were underdogs and both games they won with ease. The biggest reason has been the way the offense has played especially the quarterback Cole McDonald.
So far this year he has thrown 846 yards and nine touchdowns. He was a bit of a wildcard heading into the season but so far he hasn’t disappointed.
To win this game it’s all going to come down to how well McDonald can play. If the offense can continue to roll up the score there should be no issue coming out ahead in this game.
