The team came out a bit sloppy in the opening half of the game, but it was a different story in the 2nd half where Hawaii fought back in all three phases of the game.
Head coach Greg McMackin says learning to battle back for a win is an invaluable lesson for his team.
"That's such a great personality to have is to find a way to win, the defense had to get the ball back for the offense, and the offense went 76 yards and scored, I really liked the way we finished, I liked how we ran around, I like us being as physical as we are, we're not where we want to be, but we became better that 2nd half and we're just going to continue in that was because I know the work ethic of these players." said McMackin at his weekly press conference.
The Warriors hit the road for three straight now, beginning on Saturday against Washington State.
