BEFORE KICK-OFF

LAS VEGAS >> This is a self-proclaimed “up for grabs” game for Hawaii when they face UNLV at Allegiant Stadium today.

The Warriors, 4-6 overall and 1-4 in Mountain West, must win their last three regular season games to secure bowl eligibility.

The Warriors will get a boost with the return of rusher frontman Dae Dae Hunter, who missed three games with a shoulder injury, and cornerback Cameron Lockridge, who was out for four games.

The Rebels had lost 14 in a row, dating back to 2019, before defeating New Mexico a week ago. Quarterback Cameron Friel, a freshman and Kailua High graduate, will make his seventh start for UNLV. The Rebels have used four quarterbacks this season. Last week, Charles Williams became the UNLV’s career running leader.

Several thousand UH fans attend the game. UH also brought 40 members of its group.
