(KHNL) - The University of Hawaii's football team had seven wins so far this season. The Warriors average score has been 53 to 20. However, no more than 35,000 tickets were sold for any home game. That's about 15,000 less than capacity at Aloha Stadium.

The question remains, does more wins mean higher ticket sales?

Tomorrow the Warriors take on Louisiana Tech. For some Warrior fans, this means heading to the Rainbowtique to pick up anything and everything to show Warrior pride.

But not many are showing up for game days. I n the Warriors four home games so far this year, they've averaged just 32,300 tickets sells.   Season ticket sales are also down.

Mary Command, a UH Warrior fan, says, "When we used to go to the game years ago, ticket prices weren't as high as they are now. So if you have a family of five, it kind of puts it out of the price range for the average person."

But now that the Warriors are 7-2, have one of the country's best offenses, and feature a Heisman candidate, fans expect that should change.  Nadine Wasada is also a UH Warrior fan and says, 'I think that it'll help a lot... there's always a steady crowd, like a tradition."

June Jones, head coach for the UH Warriors says, "A lot of people are watching the game. Lots of people are excited about what we're doing.   And the ones that show up are gonna have a lot of fun."  Jones also says that revenue from pay per view games this year has already surpassed last year's totals.

There are five home games left, the four regular season ones, plus the Sheraton Hawaii Bowl on Christmas Eve.
