Manoa (Hawaii News Now) - Home coming week has already come and gone, but there's no doubt the warrior football team is happy to be back in the friendly confines of the Aloha Stadium.

And it's not just because they get to sleep in their own beds.

In their three games at Halawa, the warriors have scored 134-points or 44.6 points per contest.

By contrast, Hawaii's averaged just 27.8 points per game on the road.

It's no wonder Bryant Moniz and crew are looking forward to taking the turf at aloha stadium.

"You definitely feel a big difference." says Moniz.

"I think we come out a little more psyched because our fans are behind us. Because there's just nothing like being home."

The good vibes aren't isolated to just the offense. As a whole, UH has simply taken advantage of their home field advantage, all you have to do is look at their record.

Home: 3-0

Away: 2-3

Warriors sophomore cornerback Mike Edwards hasn't been with the Warriors long, but he says there's no doubt why their play improves in Halawa.

"It's the tradition, the local guys who are from here, they bring us in and they just take so much pride in playing at home, it kind of feeds off on us. football is all about second nature. so you kind of adjust to anything and any environment, being home is really being home for us.

UH will need every point they can get against Utah State. The Aggies average 35.9 points per game, that's tops in the WAC.

Saturday's kickoff is at 6pm.
