2010 Sheraton Hawaii Bowl Preview

Stadium: Aloha Stadium, Honolulu, Hawaii
Payout: $750,000
Played: 2002-present

Sideline Reporter: Shelley Smith
Storyline:  The Hawaii Bowl is guaranteed to be an offensive shootout with the 5th and 8th most potent offenses facing off: Tulsa and Hawaii. Tulsa’s pass defense is ranked 119th in yards allowed, which is a huge mismatch when playing the top passing attack in the country. Hawaii’s defense leads the nation with 33 forced turnovers, but is still prone to giving up big plays and should have problems with Tulsa’s spread attack. Hawaii will be playing in its home stadium and will have the vast majority of the crowd behind it. Turnovers and which team has the last possession could be the deciding factors in this matchup.
All-time Series: 5-3 Hawaii
Line: Hawaii by 10.5
