Arizona Vs Hawaii game discussion thread 8/24/19 at 7:30pm CBSSN

The Arizona Wildcats visit Aloha Stadium on August 24th to play the Hawaii Rainbow Warriors in the opening game of the 2019 college football regular season for both teams. In 2018, Arizona finished a disappointing 5-7 overall while going 4-5 in the Pac-12. Khalid Tate & JJ Taylor will be back racking up yards and points for the CATS.

Hawaii was 8-6 overall and 5-3 in the Mountain West Conference in 2018. Hawaii was defeated in its Hawaii Bowl by Louisiana Tech 31-14, but is expected to have another explosive offense with Cole McDonald returning at quarterback and John Ursua returning as his favorite target at wide receiver.

Khalil Tate led Arizona last season at quarterback with 2,530 yards passing, 26 touchdowns and eight interceptions. J.J. Taylor is the leading rusher returning from last season when he rushed for 1,435 yards and six touchdowns. The wildcats did lose their top receivers from last season and it will be interesting to see who steps up as Tate's top target.

Cole McDonald returns as Hawaii’s starting quarterback. McDonald threw for 3,875, 36 touchdowns and 10 interceptions last season. Fred Holly III leads all Hawaii running backs returning from last season. Holly rushed for 468 yards and four touchdowns in 2018. John Ursua is the leading receiver back with Hawaii. Ursua in 2018 had 89 receptions for 1,343 yards and 16 TDs.

The Wildcats are currently favored by -11.

Let's talk about how you think the CATS will do against the the Rainbow warriors.

Tough test for the defense. We’ll see if they really improved over the offseason.

I think we win 45-31.

So basically what you are all saying is take the over? it's currently at 70

Also I think while their offense is good our corners and safeties should be much improved this year and we should run all over them.

Over/under is generally tough to start the season...especially for "week 0".

With the exception of Arizona's WR's, both teams return a majority of their offense...and a large portion of the defense that struggled last season.

If I had to bet, I'd go for the over.
