Hawaii Rainbow Warriors vs. Washington Huskies Prediction, Preview, and Odds – 9-14-2019

On Saturday night, the Hawaii Rainbow Warriors and Washington Huskies will do battle in this Mountain West Conference vs. PAC-12 Conference matchup. Kickoff is set for 7:30 PM ET.

Television-wise, the matchup will be broadcast on PACN.

These two teams have met up five times and Washington leads the All-time series 3-2. The Huskies have a two game winning streak going and Washington will be looking for a bounce back win after a surprise loss to the Cal Bears.

Hawaii Looking To Go 3-0 Against The PAC-12

The Hawaii Rainbow Warriors are 2-0 this season and 2-0 against the PAC-12. They had a couple of close high scoring wins against the Arizona Wildcats and a win last week against the Oregon State Beavers. Quarterback Cole McDonald had an awesome game against Oregon State by going 30 for 52, with 421 yards, and four touchdowns. Wide receiver JoJo Ward went off for 10 catches, for 189 yards, and four touchdowns. It was a two-man show on offense and they will need a full team win if they want to take down the Huskies.

The Rainbow Warriors love to throw the ball around and that is their main game plan. They were able to put up great passing numbers against Arizona and Oregon State, but those two teams aren’t part of the best teams in this conference, the Huskies are. Hawaii does a lot of short routes and then will throw a bomb pass out of nowhere. Wide receiver Ward will be a deep threat in this game and he averages 18.5 yards per reception. The quarterback McDonald will throw interceptions, but he should get his passing yardage. The strong offensive line should make things a little easier for their quarterback. This team doesn’t rush the ball that much, so if the passing is stopped, then the Huskies should control the game.

Washington head coach Chris Petersen had this to say about Hawaii: “I think we’ve got a really good team coming in here because it is completely unique,” Washington Head Coach Chris Petersen said of Hawaii on Monday. “That’s one of the things you don’t see – they are back to the run-and-shoot which you don’t see a lot. You can say the same thing with what they are doing at (Washington State) … but you don’t see what they’re doing out there and they are good at it. Rolo has gotten back to his roots and they are good – the quarterback is good and he’s got a great sense of timing. We’ve watched a bunch of them on tape and they are legitimately good.”

Huskies Looking To Rebound After Upset Loss In Week 2

The Washington Huskies are ranked 23rd in the college football rankings and after a tune up win in Week 1, they suffered a tough loss to the Cal Bears in Week 2. Washington still had some solid numbers in the game, but the Bears just hung around, and were able to finish the win off with some field goals. The Huskies needed more targets on offense and the rushers were shut down for most of the game. Quarterback Jacob Eason went 18 for 30, for 162 yards, zero touchdowns, and one interception. This team can usually find the end zone pretty easily and it will be interesting to see what happens in Week 2.

This team has a lot of core inexperience and it might have showed in their surprise loss to Cal. To get over that loss, they will need to come out strong. They need to have a clean slate mindset and get some early touchdowns. Eason is capable of getting a few touchdown passes and Salvon Ahmed will be the x-factor to get the ball up the field. Wide receivers Hunter Bryant and Aaron Fuller will need to have huge games in yardage and make those wide open catches, instead of dropping them. Washington has always had a good defensive team and they are good at setting up the offense, with some key turnovers. The run defense will need to be ready for an onslaught as well.

Head coach Chris Peterson had this to say about his quarterbacks expectations this season: “(Expectations) can be detrimental when things get out of whack,” Petersen said. “I think things have gotten out of whack with him. He’s going to be a really great player, but he’s a college player … that’s developing and figuring things out. And I think we need to keep that perspective.”

Peterson also talks about the Hawaii passing game.

“I think we have a really good team coming in here. It’s completely unique… They are back to the run-and-shoot [offense], which you don’t see a lot… You don’t see what [Hawai’i] is doing out there, and they are good at it. [Head coach Nick] Rolovich has gotten back to his roots, and they’re good. The quarterback is good, he’s got a great sense of timing. We’ve watched him a bunch now on tape. They’re legitimately good. They’ve got really good receivers that catch the ball really well… And then you sprinkle in the run game they have that is really effective. That’s why they’re scoring a lot of points.”

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

Hawaii won’t be able to run the ball as easily as they did against the other PAC-12 teams, but they should be able to get some great yardage. They need to pass a little more than usual because if they get stopped in the rushing game, then they will just have field goals to work with.

Washington usually has close wins against Hawaii, but this one needs to be a blowout. They need to show the rankings that last weeks loss was a weird fluke. Eason will have a bounce back game and the other targets will follow.

Prediction: Washington Huskies -21

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

Hawaii had close games against subpar PAC-12 teams and now they have their first road game at Washington. It’s a tough place to score at and the Huskies are great at keeping the opponent out of the end zone.

Washington is capable of scoring around 35 to 40 points and light it up at home. They have plenty of targets that can catch well and they won’t drop easy passes this week. Huskies win 42-20.

Prediction: Under 58.5
