LIVE BLOG: Hawaii football team hosts undefeated Nevada

Nevada starts today’s game 5-0, atop the Mountain West, in a shortened eight-game season in which winning percentages determine the finalists for the title.

For the Warriors, it’s an opportunity to reverse a two-game lost streak, dropping them to 2-3.

For the Wolf Pack, there is the painful memory of last season’s encounter. The Warriors won 54-3 to ruin the platoon’s homecoming.

“This is a team we didn’t play well against a year ago,” said Nevada coach Jay Norvell. “We were ashamed to say the least by our performance. And so we’ve been looking forward to this game for a while. “

Some keys:

> Romeo Doubs is the national leaders all over Nevada with 161.3 receiving yards per game. The mean distance for his eight TD catches is 41.7 yards.

> Do you remember Doug Jolley? During his NFL career, he was known for his blocking and secure hands. Cole Turner has made comparisons with Jolley. Turner is 6-7, 240 pounds, and crunchy in the 7 route, a deep-angle pattern.

Nevada quarterback Carson Strong has a, well, strong arm. But he’s not exactly mobile. Look for the Warriors to bring the heat.
