WAC Has A New Champ

HONOLULU, Hi. - No. 15 Hawaii couldn't have picked a better night to shine. A nationally-televised audience, along with a sold-out Aloha Stadium, witnessed UH win their first-ever outright Western Athletic Conference title after defeating No. 19 Boise State 39-27. Highlighted by a series of records offensively and big hits defensively, the Warriors overcame a tight three quarters of play to comfortably take away the win and school's best record to date. The victory is Hawaii's first ever over Boise State since the Broncos joined the conference in 2001 and with it snapped their 18-game WAC win streak.

Changes for second half

Hawaii's offensive line needs to step it up in the second half, allowing Brennan more time to throw the ball. Defensively for the Warriors, UH needs to put the Broncos away quicker. They're doing a good job on first and second down coverage, but are struggling later in the plays. If UH can keep the offense on the field longer then Hawaii should come out on top, meaning the defense has to come through for the Warriors.

Boise State needs to watch their penalties. They already have 4 for 33 yards. Also, they have had 12 third-down plays but have only converted on six of them. Ian Johnson is key to the Bronco offense, and he's proved his running game works.

Pre-game notes

HONOLULU, HI
Fridady's matchup between the University of Hawaii Warriors and the Boise State University Broncos will be for the Western Athletic Conference title. Both teams are unbeaten at 7-0 in the conference and ranked nationally. The No. 15, 10-0 Warriors will play host to the No. 19, 10-1 Broncos who have won or shared the WAC title in five consecutive years. Hawaii has never beaten Boise State while in the same conference and the Broncos hold a 6-2 advantage in the overall series. In addition, Hawaii shares the nation's longest winning streak with Kansas, the Warrior's last loss dating back to September 23, 2006 against Boise on the blue turf.

The game will feature the WAC's top players in Warrior quarterback Colt Brennan and Bronco running back Ian Johnson. Both Brennan and Johnson finished in the top-10 of last year's Heisman voting at 6 and 8, respectively.Brennan will return to the field after having sat out of last week's contest at Nevada due to a concussion suffered against Fresno State. The Broncos will be without starting safety Jeron Johnson and running back D.J. Harper, both of whom did not make the trip due to injuries.

All 50,000 seats at Aloha Stadium will be full as the game has been sold out for weeks. The nationally-televised contest has been the source of anticipation since last season. In a game that has been tabbed "Green-Out" for Warrior fans, there is still a cloud of orange and blue as some 2,000 Boise State fans have made the trip to Hawaii. The Warriors have just performed the ritual Ha'a and player introductions are soon to follow.
