NMSU, Top 25, Pete Wilson, Etc.

Dave Reardon reviews five big plays from UH's 59-24 win over New Mexico State in this week's Warrior Replay.

Stephen Tsai talks to Coach Mack and the players about UH's Top 25 ranking in the AP poll.
Defensive tackle Kaniela Tuipulotu recalled the summer of school, weight training and running in the humidity while friends were at the beach.

"You want to be there with your friends, but you're doing something they can never do," Tuipulotu said. "They all know that we're doing things to represent. Our friends and family support us. They know we're doing it for everyone in the state. It's worth the sacrifices when you get to see the benefits."
Dave Reardon tracks down Pete Wilson, whose 60-year-old rushing record Alex Green broke on Saturday. Great article.
His wife, Carol, answers the phone and hands it to him.

I say hello and ask him how he's doing.

A one-beat pause.

"I'm pissed off!"

Oh, oh. But when he starts laughing, I know he's my kind of guy.
Ferd Lewis writes that Tulsa and Central Florida are the top candidates to face UH in the Hawaii Bowl.
Both are 9-3, as are the Warriors.

UCF, the Conference USA Eastern Division champion, meets Southern Methodist, the West champ, on Saturday for the C-USA title.

A UCF victory would send the Knights to the Liberty Bowl and likely put Tulsa, the West runner-up, in the Hawaii Bowl on Christmas Eve, although the deal has yet to be made.
And the UH Athletics Department has a Cyber Monday special on UH-UNLV tickets.

    Now living in Florida Panhandle. UH matches up better against Tulsa. Central Florida at 9-3 has UNDER-achieved this year. This is a great powerhouse team. Reminds me of the ECU team that dominated a few years ago. Central Florida has bad match ups for UH in the exact same way that Wisconsin had bad match ups for UH. Playing Tulsa will make a case for some recruiting in the Mountain West too. Central Florida gets all the big, fast kids that the SEC and ACC didn't get. Aloha! slenzi
