PLAYER TO WATCH
Diocemy Saint Juste, Hawaii running back. The 5-foot-8, 200-pound senior has rushed 270 times for 1,471 yards and seven touchdowns this season.
BYU offensive line vs. Hawaii’s front seven: Cougar freshman quarterback Joe Critchlow threw four interceptions and was sacked seven times last week against UMass. Can the O-line protect Critchlow from the Rainbow Warriors’ attacking blitz packages?
“Winning the last game of the season would be very important as far as recruiting and knowing that we can win again and not living the offseason in doubt, if we know how to win. It’s all in your head. It’s mentality. Ending the season with a win on Senior Night against BYU has the ability to send us off in the right direction hitting December and January recruiting and all the stuff that goes with it.” — Hawaii coach Nick Rolovich
“Senior Day didn’t go well for us this last weekend. But we have one last game to send our guys out as winners and just as important is trying to set the tone for next season. That’s the ultimate goal for us.” — BYU coach Kalani Sitake
Saturday’s game is the season finale for both teams.
