The Western Kentucky Hilltoppers and the Hawai’i Rainbow Warriors meet up in Week 1 at Clarence T.C. Ching Complex in Honolulu. Kickoff is set for 11:59 p.m. ET and the game will air on Spectrum PPV. This will be the first-ever meeting between these two teams, and bragging rights will be at stake in addition to adding to the win column.
Western Kentucky (0-0, 0-0 CUSA) will look to prove that last year’s success (9-5, 7-2 CUSA) was not a one-off scenario after the Hilltoppers' offense averaged a whopping 44.2 points per game following a successful transfer portal strategy.
Hawai’i (0-0, 0-0 MWC) will welcome Timmy Chang back into the fold as head coach of the Rainbow Warriors, with the hope that he can resurrect some of the high-powered offenses of the past and improve on the program’s 2021 record (6-7).
Western Kentucky is a 13-point favorite at DraftKings Sportsbook, and -490 on the moneyline. That makes Hawai’i a +390 moneyline underdog, with the point total set at 61.
