Hawaii Rainbow Warriors Game Notes

Hawaii redshirt sophomore QB Chevan Cordeiro completed 20-of-33 passes for 252 yards and an interception while rushing 12 times for 88 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's 38-21 win over UNLV. All things considered, Cordeiro's day through the air looks worse in the box score than it actually was. Cordeiro regularly did well to keep the chains moving and string together drives with short-to-intermediate passes. It just so happened that every Hawaii scoring drive, and there were many of them, all ended with rushing touchdowns, not passing touchdowns. Cordeiro even punched a couple in himself, making him the only Hawaii player to score twice. Hawaii finish the regular season at a solid 4-4.

Houston Cougars Game Notes

Houston junior QB Clayton Tune completed 30-of-49 passes for 270 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in Saturday’s 30-27 loss to Memphis. Ever since Halloween, a stretch in which Houston has gone 1-3, Tune has been struggling with his efficiency, and this game was no different. Tune (6'3/215) ended up putting the ball into the air 49 times, and, while he did complete 61.2%, Tune averaged a paltry 5.5 YPA and threw an interception for a rough QBR of 47.8. This upset loss marks the end to a very strange 2020 regular season for the Cougars, who finish 3-4.

Hawaii vs. Houston Betting Prediction

This game should turn into a shootout this afternoon in Texas. The over is 4-1 in the Rainbow Warriors’ last five bowl games, is 4-1 in their last five neutral site games and is 16-6 in their last 22 non-conference matchups. On the other side, the over is 5-1 in the Cougars’ last six bowl games, is 5-2-1 in their last eight non-conference games and has cashed in seven of their last 10 games played in the month of December.
