UH to play Navy in 2013 and 2015

Via HawaiiAthletics.com:
University of Hawai‘i Athletics Director Jim Donovan announced a two-year football contract with the Naval Academy during the 2013 and 2015 seasons.

The teams will play Nov. 9, 2013 at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium inAnnapolis, Md., and Nov. 28, 2015 at Aloha Stadium in Honolulu.

“I’ve very pleased to be able to continue our football playing relationship with the Naval Academy,” Donovan said. “Obviously with the rich Naval presence in the islands and Pearl Harbor serving as a backdrop to Aloha Stadium, we have a special association with this academy. It will be a great experience for our student-athletes to play in Annapolis much like it was at West Point last year.”
P.S. I'm not seeing the previously-announced 2013 and 2014 Oregon State games on HawaiiAthletics.com's future schedules page, so the 2013 Navy game could be a replacement. I'm also not seeing any future UNLV games past next year, which makes sense since those will now be conference games.

    No Oregon State? BoooHoooHooo! Sure local boys get to play in front of Hawaii fans, but to me that is a dis-incentive to schedule Oregon State. They just use it as a recruiting trip where UH pays them to do it. Keeping the schedule O-state free would not bother anyone, especially now that UH has moved up a notch in conference strength. Just my two cents.
