Hawaii Bowl Arizona State at Hawaii

December 24, 2006

Hawaii Bowl Arizona State at Hawaii (-7, 72) 8:00 PM EST

If you're in the mood for watching some offensive football, not offensive in terms of disgusting, rather high scoring, tune your cable or DirecTV box to ESPN on Christmas Eve at 8:00 PM for what figures to be a shootout affair featuring a pair of accomplished signal callers, Colt Brennan of Hawaii and Rudy Carpenter of Arizona State. The Warriors are one of two teams hosting their bowl games this season and are accompanied by a spread of just over a touchdown.

Not surprisingly, this is the bowl game with the highest posted total (74.5) on it of any of the 32 games. Of course, it boasts the prolific passing offense of Hawaii. The Warriors' talented junior QB Brennan threw for a nation-leading 4,990 yards and 53 TD's this season! Behind him, Hawaii poured in 47.3 PPG, and their offensive output of 8.5 yards per play is the highest in college football by over 1.0 YPP since at least 1997! Playing on its home turf, June Jones' attack is likely to be hitting on all cylinders.

For Arizona State, a 7-5 season that at the outset boasted Rose Bowl hopes faded into disappointment first with the initial QB controversy and finally with the eventual firing of head coach Dirk Koetter. In truth, Carpenter had a better season a year ago. In fact,the whole Sam Keller transfer controversy back in August really did a number on him and the rest of the program, as they were talking Rose Bowl at the outset of the campaign.

Future Head Coach Dennis Erickson will be watching his new Sun Devils from somewhere and the players would be best served giving it their all here. That might be the only thing motivating the team at this point, as many players were outspoken of their gratitude for being given this bowl bid and spending some "relaxation" time in Hawaii. Watch how that plays out, as Jones & Brennan will spare no mercy in pouring on the points if capable.
