FINAL SCORE: Western Kentucky 49, Hawaii 17

The University of Hawaii football team will look to bounce back from an ugly 63-10 loss to Vanderbilt last week in Timmy Chang’s head coaching debut against Western Kentucky.

The Hilltoppers opened the season with a 38-27 victory over Austin Peay. To adjust to the distance (4,267 miles) and five-hour time difference, the Hilltoppers turned Monday’s recovery day into a practice session. They arrived on Thursday and practiced on Friday.

Hawaii will start Joey Yellen at quarterback. Yellen went 10-for-20 for 89 yards in the second half against the Commodores after replacing starter Brayden Schager.

This is the first meeting between the two teams.
