Louisiana Tech Bulldogs at Hawaii Warriors

October 2nd 2010 11:30 PM EST

Line: Hawaii -8 1/2


Aloha Louisiana Tech. Even if the Bulldogs don’t come out with a victory, what better place to lose than at Hawaii? Louisiana Tech will be a long way from home, but how big of a factor will the travel actually play in this WAC match up.

Keys to the Game:

  • Hawaii has the best passing offense in the country. This shouldn’t come as too big as a surprise. When Colt Brennan led them to their first bowl game, he set numerous passing records. They play against weak competition generally and they love to throw the ball. Louisiana Tech falls into the weak competition category, so look for Hawaii to victimize them as Bryant Moniz slings the rock around.
  • Newly appointed starting Bulldog quarterback Tarik Hakmi needs to take command of the offense. He shows promise, but is not yet fully comfortable. He needs to establish himself as the golden arm and undisputed leader of his football team. Throwing a couple of picks last week didn’t help his cause, but bouncing back against Hawaii will help him earn the trust of his team.
  • Hawaii is a proud football team. Many of the players have Polynesian roots, which they embrace with their rendition of the Haka before games. They have proven to be inconsistent, but they have not had the easiest schedule. The Warriors will not be embarrassed by a Louisiana Tech team. Even against the more talented USC team, they let their opponent feel their presence. Many teams walk away with personal fouls when they play in Hawaii. Expect to see some jibber jabber.

Wrap Up:

The spread is 8 1/2. In this weeks edition of my sports picks, it has been challenging to go with any of the underdogs. I don’t think Louisiana Tech is near the level of Hawaii. The Hawaii Air show will continue on Saturday.
