On to Idaho

Here's game info and a preview with a link to game notes from HawaiiAthletics.com.

Via SanLuisObispo.com, The Sports Network has a game preview.
The Vandals are playing with a lot of confidence right now and with Hawaii unsettled at quarterback, this is a great opportunity for Idaho to keep things going. Expect the Vandals to exploit the Warriors' soft defense and capture the victory this weekend.

Sports Network Predicted Outcome: Idaho 38, Hawaii 28
Jason Kaneshiro profiles Richard Torres.
"I'm so used to being super aggressive and run to the ball right away," Torres said. "At free safety you've got to be a little more patient, make sure it's a run before you come up, don't be overly aggressive."

Torres has been a productive member of the secondary at nickel back, logging nine tackles with one forced fumble.

"He's played really well for us, he's graded out the best of anybody and he makes plays. He's always correct and does a good job," UH head coach Greg McMackin said.
Kaneshiro also has some injury updates.
Defensive tackle Vaughn Meatoga and wide receiver Royce Pollard are not expected to accompany the team when the Warriors embark on their trip to the Northwest, McMackin said last night.

Meatoga has been hampered by a sprained ankle since UH's loss at UNLV on Sept. 19. He tried to play the last two games, but was largely limited by the injury.

Pollard started the last two games at Z receiver and on kickoff returns, but will miss Saturday's game due to a stress fracture. McMackin said he wasn't sure how long the injury will keep Pollard out of action.
Stephen Tsai talks to Adrian Thomas about his back injury.
Right tackle Adrian Thomas, who has been an effective blocker in his two starts, is expected to resume practicing today.

"I  think I'm ready," said Thomas, whose lower-back pain prevented him from playing in the second half of last Saturday's 42-17 loss to Fresno State.
Tsai also has news and notes about Austin Hansen, Vaughn Meatoga and Geordon Hanohano.

And Ferd Lewis writes an ode to the Kibbie Dome.
Not immediately sighting the football stadium on the University of Idaho campus the first time the University of Hawai'i played there in 2005, a visitor inquired if it might be located behind "the barn."

No, was the terse response, "that is the (stadium)."
