UH football schedule announced
LIHU‘E — The 2013 University of Hawai‘i football schedule is complete with the announcement of the Mountain West conference slate.
“The schedule is very challenging but we knew that it would be,” Head Coach Norm Chow said. “I don’t know of too many teams that open the season with two quality Pac-12 opponents then have to start the league with some of the top teams in the conference. But our guys will be ready and they understand what it means to get off to a strong start.”
The Warriors open the season with consecutive Pac-12 games against USC, Thursday, Aug. 29 at Hawaiian Airlines Field at Aloha Stadium and at Oregon State Sept. 7 in Corvallis, Ore. The USC game marks the fifth time since 1999 that the teams will open the season against one another. The teams opened last season in the Los Angeles Coliseum with USC winning 49-10 in Chow’s coaching debut. The following week, UH will play an OSU team which finished last season ranked No. 20 nationally.
Following the first of two bye weeks, Hawai‘i then opens Mountain West play at Nevada Sept. 20 before returning to Honolulu for consecutive home games against Fresno State Sept. 27 and new MW member San Jose State Oct. 5.
UH then travels to Las Vegas for a road game at UNLV Oct. 12. Following its second bye week, the Warriors return to Aloha Stadium to host Colorado State Oct. 26 before embarking on a two-week road trip for a conference game at Utah State Nov. 2 and its first-ever trip to Annapolis. Md., for a non-conference game at Navy Nov. 9.
The Warriors return to host San Diego State Nov. 16 and will play at Wyoming Nov. 23 before closing the schedule with a non-conference game against Army Nov. 30 in Honolulu.
