Hawaii plays 13 games this season...

Hawaii plays 13 games this season...

How did they pull that off?  8 conference games, 1 FCS opponent, and 4 BCS teams.  I think we should do that…play an extra game, get some another guarantee game maybe.

Re: Hawaii plays 13 games this season...

Hawaii approached FAU to play what would have been a 13th game last year. We had an open spot that fit Hawaii's schedule. Howard declined. He was focused on the Sun Belt title and thought the travel would be too much to recover from before the next game. I don't remember the whole scenario real well. We might have had a short week following the Hawaii game had we played them.

Hawaii and teams that play at Hawaii were allowed to add a game under the old 11-game schedule to make up the extra travel expense.  I didn't know they were still able to do that with the 12-game schedule.
