Warriors schedule football game with UCLA Bruins

The University of Hawaii will play UCLA in football for the first time in more than three-quarters of a century, it was announced today.

The Warriors will play the Bruins Sept. 9,  2017 at the Rose Bowl.

They have met twice previously, both UCLA victories, the last time in 1939.

UH also announced future dates with Kansas (2016 and ’17) and said it is talking with Ohio State.

“The addition of UCLA and Kansas elevates the strength of our non-conference football schedules,” athletic director Ben Jay said in a release.  “Both are top-notch programs and are the type of teams our fans want to see us play. We will continue to schedule teams from these conferences to add to our future schedules and find every opportunity to showcase our student-athletes and our university to a national audience.”

In 2014 UH will play Washington, Oregon State, Northern Iowa and Colorado.
