Hawaii Betting Stats & 2019 Season Profile

  • Season Record: 9-4
  • Against-the-Spread Record: 7-6
  • Conference: Mountain West
  • Offense Yards Per Play Rank: 11
  • Defense Yards Per Play Rank: 109
  • S&P+ Special Teams Rank: 110

Analysis: There’s a clear strength when it comes to 2019 Hawaii football, and it’s pretty well reflected in yards-per-play stats. The Warriors rank 109th in the country on defense, giving up an average of 6.36 yards. On offense, however, they’re number 11 at 6.79 … easy to see how eight of their games eclipsed the 70-point mark. Hawaii isn’t just relying on one playmaker, either. Impressively, the Warriors have three receivers in the Mountain West top five in yards on the year — each with at least 900 yards — to go along with an 800-yard rusher in Miles Reed. Quarterback Cole McDonald led the conference with 29 touchdown passes and ranked second in passing yards. –Danny Donahue

BYU Betting Stats & 2019 Season Profile

  • Season Record: 7-5
  • Against-the-Spread Record: 4-7
  • Conference: Independent
  • Offense Yards Per Play Rank: 41
  • Defense Yards Per Play Rank: 56
  • S&P+ Special Teams Rank: 92

Analysis: A Utah-Tennessee-USC-Washington start to the season seemed like perhaps a daunting task for BYU, but the Cougars made it through with two wins despite being underdogs in all four games. Following that, BYU actually lost its next two games (to Toledo and USF) as favorites, but stormed back with five straight victories — including one over Boise State — to reach seven wins on the year. The Cougars’ offense averaged 6.18 yards per play (41st in the nation) and their defense gave up 5.50 (56th), though their SP+ ratings weren’t quite so high, coming in at No. 72 and 50, respectively. –Danny Donahue
