Hawaii Warriors Football Schedule
In beautiful Hawaii, there are many sports that locals and visitors enjoy year
round. But every fall, the most exciting sport in Hawaii returns when the Hawaii Rainbow Warriors take the field at Aloha
Stadium to begin another season of NCAA Football. A member of the Mountain West Conference, the Rainbow Warriors compete against
some of the most exciting teams in the country, from the San Diego State Aztecs to the Boise State Broncos, all while offering
fans the most beautiful backdrop in all of college football. Their 2014 season is sure to be another thrilling installment
of Rainbow Warrior football, so check the schedule at StubHub today to see all of the exciting options.
Though the Warriors
are coming off of a tough season where they finished 1-11, the fans are always ready to cheer their team on, with much anticipation
in Honolulu for the 2014 season. There are many games to highlight on the Rainbow Warriors schedule starting with an opening
day matchup with the Washington Huskies of the Pac 12 Conference. The Huskies ended a nice season in 2013 with a victory over
the BYU Cougars in the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl in San Francisco, and are looking to take the bowl victory momentum into the
new season. The Pac 12 is going to be extremely competitive again in 2014, so they would like to leave paradise with a victory.
game to circle on the Rainbow Warriors' schedule is their November 1 clash with the Utah State Aggies, who led the Mountain
West's Mountain Division in 2013 with a 9-5 record. The Rainbow Warriors may have only won one game last season, but one thing
they did extremely well was passing the football, finishing in the Top 20 in passing. Rainbow Warrior quarterback Sean Schroeder
thrived in Coach Norm Chow's system, throwing for just shy of 3,000 yards and 28 touchdowns. If the Aggies want to win at
Aloha Stadium, they will need to slow the hot handed Schroeder down, and that is a tough task for any defense. Unfortunately
for the Warriors, the Aggies were 7th in the nation in 2013 in points against, giving up a very stingy 17 points per game.
This game is a classic case of high powered offense against tough defense that college football fans won't want to miss.
Hawaii Warriors Football Conference
Like most of their fellow Mountain West Conference foes, the Hawaii Rainbow
Warriors moved to the conference from the Western Athletic Conference. Making the move in 2012, the Rainbow Warriors have
found that life is a little more competitive in the Mountain West. Fielding teams in the mountain and western states in the
US, the Mountain West Conference has seen a lot of change in its 16 years of existence. The BCS changed its bylaws to allow
non BCS teams, like those in the Mountain West Conference, to qualify for BCS bowl games. Mountain West Conference teams have
qualified for BCS bowl games 4 times: the Utah Utes in 2005, the Utes again in 2009, the TCU Horned Frogs in 2010, and TCU
again in 2011. Both Utah and TCU have moved on the play in BCS conferences, and the Mountain West is looking to teams like
the Hawaii Rainbow Warriors and Boise State Broncos, who made BCS bowl games while members of the WAC, to be the next in line
for the MWC.
Hawaii Warriors Football Experience
You will be hard pressed to find a more beautiful backdrop
for a football game than what you experience at a Rainbow Warrior home game at Aloha Stadium. One of the most state of the
art stadiums in the sport, Aloha Stadium is best known as the home of the NFL's Pro Bowl every February when the best players
in the game make the trip to Honolulu to put on an exciting exhibition for fans. When the Rainbow Warriors take the field,
their fans welcome them with incredible spirit that make Aloha Stadium a safe haven for the home team and an intimidating
atmosphere for the visitors.
Hawaii Warriors Football Rivalries

Conference. The main rival of the Hawaii Rainbow Warriors is the Fresno State Bulldogs, a rivalry that has very deep roots.
