Fresh off a near-historic comeback against Fresno State, the Rainbow Warriors football team will look to carry that momentum into Saturday's game against San Jose State.
One of the biggest questions heading into Hawaii's matchup with the Spartans is who will be the starting quarterback.
Despite engineering five touchdown drives in 20 minutes, Sean Schroeder still has not been named the team's starter.
With Taylor Graham still on the mend, head coach Norm Chow had Schroeder and Ikaika Woolsey share reps this week during practice.
"I thought they both played well," Chow said. "It's obviously different circumstances that allowed them to do what they did. I thought Ikaika played okay and obviously, Sean did as well. The situation was different."
While the UH quarterback situation is up in the air, Spartans quarterback David Fales has a clean bill of health.
Projected as a high-round pick in next April's NFL draft, Fales will be asked to do a lot, especially considering he lost his top receiver, Noel Grigsby, to injury.
It could be enough to take the heat off Hawaii's defense, which is eager to improve on a mediocre performance where it allowed 21 first-half points to the Bulldogs.
"We just need to be crisper in our detail and our assignments," linebacker Brenden Daley. "We need to play less tentative and cautious. This week we need to score on defense. That'd be really good for us."
Hawaii is 0-4 this season, while San Jose State is 1-3. Both teams are looking for their first conference win of the year.
