Boise State Vs. Hawaii: Warriors Just Happy To Be Playing College Football

SB Nation's Boise State community, OBNUG, takes a lighthearted look at the gridiron history of their Week 10 opponents, the Hawaii Warriors:

In 1909 The University of Hawaii played their first football game ever against McKinley High School, and won 6-5. Coach Austin Jones' squad played under the moniker "Fighting Deans" and went 2-2 on the year— beating McKinley twice and losing to Punahou College twice. The following year, Jones' squad played the exact same schedule, but took an extra crack at both teams. The 1910 squad defeated McKinley High 3 times and went 1-2 against Punahou. 1911? You guessed it—Punahou and McKinley High. In fact, UH didn't play a team besides Punahou College or McKinley High School until 1915. And you thought you were sick of playing Idaho...

Remember this, dear Boise partisans, the next time you're griping about nobody wanting to make the trek to north to the blue turf. (At least when you travel to play Hawaii, you end up in Hawaii.)
