The Rainbow Warriors will open with consecutive road games at Fresno State (Oct. 24) and at Wyoming (Oct. 31) before returning to Honolulu for their home-opener against New Mexico (Nov. 7). After another road game at San Diego State (Nov. 14) in Carson, Calif., UH hosts Boise State (Nov. 21) in a rematch of last year’s MW Championship game.
 
Following the BSU game, Nevada comes to Aloha Stadium the following week (Nov. 28) before UH closes out the schedule with a road game at San Jose State (Dec. 5) and home game against UNLV (Dec. 12). 
 
The MW, along with national television partners CBS Sports and FOX Sports, will begin a selection procedure that will include shifting several games to Thursdays and Fridays. All games played in the first week will be played on Saturday, Oct. 24. An announcement on national television broadcasts will be made in the coming weeks.
 
Hawai’i’s schedule includes seven schools from its original 2020 slate. The Warriors will not play at Air Force this season and instead travel to Wyoming in a battle for the Paniolo Trophy. UH will play two other rivalry trophy games – Dick Tomey Legacy Trophy (vs. San Jose State) and Island Showdown Trophy (vs. UNLV).
 
The last time UH opened a season with two road games was 1992 (at Oregon and at Air Force). In 2016, the Warriors opened the season with a neutral site game against California in Sydney, Australia followed by a road contest at Michigan.
