Brian Mason: 
The Badgers (8-3) enter tonight's game following a week off after dropping a 33-31 decision to Northwestern on Nov. 21. Hawaii (6-6) is riding a four-game win streak after dropping six straight earlier in the season.

There is something on the line for both teams tonight, with bowl lineups being finalized this weekend. The Badgers will learn their bowl destination Sunday, while the Warriors need a win tonight to earn a berth in the Hawaii Bowl.

The big pregame news from here at Aloha Stadium is that Peter Konz won't start at center tonight because of lung inflamation.
Saturday December 5, 2009 10:29 Brian Mason

Brian Mason: 
In his absence, John Moffitt will slide over to the center spot, while Travis Frederick will start at left guard

The kick is shanked and rolls out of bounds at the UW 30, so some good field position to start for the Badgers

Twin recievers to Tolzien's right

I'd love to see the option a little tonight with Phillips-Ball.
Saturday December 5, 2009 10:42 Chicago Jeff
10:43
Brian Mason: 
There's Montee just after you asked for him ... no option but he runs around the right side for a big gain and it's 2nd and 1 at the UH 32
Saturday December 5, 2009 10:43 Brian Mason
10:44

Ball is hauled down in the backfield this time trying to run to the wide side and it's a loss of 3 for the Badgers ... 3rd and 4 at the UH 36

A nice opening drive for the Badgers that saw a good dose of Clay running straight ahead and a great third-down conversion by Tolzien and Toon
Saturday December 5, 2009 10:46 Brian Mason

Looked like Toon just ran past the smaller db. Seems like he can run a few go routes tomight and look faster than he is?
Saturday December 5, 2009 10:48 Chicago Jeff
10:48
Brian Mason: 
He has done a good job of getting open so far, and the DB covering him on the long ball down the sideline was in no position to make a play because Toon beat him off the line of scrimmage
Saturday December 5, 2009 10:48 Brian Mason
10:49

Welch kicks off and Taylor puts on another show on the return before being brought down at the UH 31 by Antonio Fenelus

Moniz takes over and has four receivers out wide

He takes off out of the shotgun and connects with Pliares on an 18-yard pass ... he did a nice job of making something out of nothing there

Scoring early against Hawaii is big because it takes the very vocal Rainbow supporters out of the game.

They have gotten into now with the Warriors marching ... it's far from a capacity crowd, but there's plenty of noise in the house tonight

Watt with a nice stop to hold UH to no gain .. .2nd and 10

Moniz had plenty of time to make a throw and pitched it right in the direction of Jay Valai, who came across the field to grab the interception

He had plenty of time to throw on that last dropback, but he fired right at a pair of white jerseys and Valai snagged the ball and managed to hang on after a roll on the turf

Brian, as someone who lived in Hawaii for 12 years, I can tell you it "rains" almost every day. That's why they call them the Rainbows. The rain is usually a pleasant drizzle.

Coverage has been good so far, with Hawaii's completions coming mostly on passes underneath

The Badgers dig into the play book for one of their favorites ... Gilreath on an end-around after Tolzien faked the handoff to Clay ... a great block by Kendricks helped Gilreath get to the corner and into the end zone
