Bowl-bound, baby! Congratulations to the Hawaii Warriors, a team that had a shaky start, fought through adversity the entire year, and in the end… persevered. The team accepted an invitation to the Sheraton Hawaii Bowl after tonight’s victory over Washington State. How sweet it is! Here’s a game summary from the Honolulu Advertiser.
Relying on quarterback Greg Alexander’s multiple skills and the relentless defense, Hawai’i earned a 24-10 victory over Washington State tonight and a berth in the Dec. 24 Sheraton Hawai’i Bowl.
By improving to 7-5, the Warriors clinched a winning regular season, their minimum requirement for receiving an invitation to the postseason.
It was the Warriors’ third victory in a row, and it completed a climb from a 1-2 start in Greg McMackin’s first year as UH head coach.
