The Hawaii Rainbow Warriors picked up a big win last week, knocking off the No. 18 Fresno State Bulldogs, 27-24. Hawaii’s defense stepped up big, intercepting Bulldogs quarterback Jake Haener four times in the win.

Rainbow Warriors’ freshman quarterback Brayden Schager got his first start under center and his box score reflected his inexperience, completing just 11 of 27 passes for 116 yards and two touchdowns. Hawaii’s starting quarterback Chevan Cordeiro (1,410 yards and 7 touchdowns) should be back for this week’s contest against the Nevada Wolf Pack in Reno.

Nevada improved to 4-1 on the season, defeating the New Mexico State Aggies last week, 55-28. 

The Wolf Pack’s starting quarterback Carson Strong would post another big passing performance in the win over the Aggies, throwing for 377 yards and six touchdowns. Strong now has 1,595  passing yards, 14 touchdowns, and three interceptions in 2021.

Hawaii vs. Nevada Prediction and Pick

Nevada has a big passing offense, but that shouldn’t be too different of a look for Hawaii’s defense after facing the Fresno State Bulldogs’ passing attack in Week 6.

Both of the Wolf Pack and Rainbow Warriors are pass-first teams. Hawaii is averaging 258.2 passing yards per game and Nevada is averaging 357 passing yards per game. The interesting thing is, both teams have not been great on passing defense, so this game should see a ton of action in the air.

To me, these teams line up too close statistically for there to be a 14.5-point spread. Both of these defenses will give up too many points, so it is hard to see either team falling behind. After beating No. 18 Fresno State, I can’t see Hawaii getting beat by more than two touchdowns to an inferior Nevada team.

I’m taking Hawaii on the spread at +14.5 and over 60.
