LaTech Review, Pilaresalas, Upcoming Games

Dave Reardon reviews five big plays from UH's 41-21 victory over LaTech in this week's Warrior Replay.

Two former UH stars, Colt Brennan and Nate Ilaoa, talks about two current UH stars, Kealoha Pilares and Greg Salas.
"Greg used to kill our first-team defense," Ilaoa recalled. "It was kind of funny, but when he first came, we didn't know Greg's last name. One of the guys thought his last name was 'Salsa.' We used to say, 'There goes Salsa again.' (The first-team offense) didn't get to practice with him too much, but we always heard from the guys on defense that he was making the great catches. The stuff he does now doesn't surprise me. He's put in the hard work. I'm glad to see the rest of the nation is seeing it."
Dave Reardon looks at the upcoming stretch of games.
Now, in their upcoming five games, the Warriors face the four WAC schools (including two now nationally ranked) that beat them after last year's LaTech loss — at Fresno State, home against Nevada and Idaho, and at Boise State (with a visit to feisty Utah State thrown in the middle). Things get much easier down the stretch with San Jose State, New Mexico State and UNLV. You can count those three as wins, meaning UH needs just one victory in this tough next five games to lock up a winning regular season and Hawaii Bowl bid.

UH is in much better position now than a year ago to take on this midseason gauntlet.
