GameDay: UH vs Idaho

Stephen Tsai's gameday preview has stats, lineups and breakdowns of the offense, defense and specialists for both teams.

Jason Kaneshiro's gameday preview has stats, lineups, breakdowns and highlights this key matchup:
UH QB Greg Alexander vs. Idaho secondary

Alexander has stabilized the quarterback spot in the Warriors' last 2 1/2 games, making his progressions with greater confidence and connecting on 69 percent of his throws in that span.

His chemistry with the receivers has contributed to a string of 92 passes without an interception dating back to the season opener at Florida.

Idaho had some success defensively against the Warriors last season, intercepting five Colt Brennan passes in Moscow, Idaho.

But the Vandals' secondary has been depleted by injuries and suspensions. Safety Shiloh Keo suffered a season-ending shoulder injury in September, and cornerback Breyon Williams and safety Shelton Miles were suspended earlier this month. Keo and Williams had picks against UH last year.
Here's a game preview from the AP's Jaymes Song.
With the four-player scramble to succeed Colt Brennan finally over, Alexander can now focus on his opponents instead of trying to keep the starting job. The strong-armed junior college transfer has helped the defending WAC champs return to the traditional run-and-shoot, high-scoring style of offense they lost when the mobile Inoke Funaki was the starter.

"Mentally, I'm starting to grasp the offense, starting to understand things, starting to see things a lot quicker," Alexander said.

And the formula for Hawaii's success is simple: score and win. The Warriors are 5-0 when scoring 20 points or more.
