Rivalries & Top Games to Attend

Hawaii vs Fresno State

Rival Team: Fresno StateBulldogs

The rivalry between Fresno State and Hawaii is a fairly new one. However, there seems to be a lot of bad blood here especially among the fans. Both teams have performed well on the field lately, and there have been several incidents of coaches and fans accusing the other team of bad sportsmanship.

Hawaii vs BYU

Rival Team: BYU Cougars

Many Hawaii fans view BYU as their biggest rival due to the large Mormon population in the state. BYU also tends to recruit a lot of players from Hawaii, which has led to a somewhat one-sided rivalry where many Hawaii fans don’t like BYU, but BYU fans feel indifferent towards Hawaii. The Rainbow Warriors and their fans get up for match ups with BYU, so you can expect a great atmosphere when Hawaii takes on the Cougars.

Paniolo Trophy

Rival Team: Wyoming Cowboys

Hawaii and Wyoming play for the Paniolo Trophy when these to Mountain West rivals clash. The trophy gets its name from the Hawaiian word for cowboy and has been contested since 1978 when these two schools first met.
