The Spartans beat Hawaii 35:24 in Honolulu in December when Tyler Nevens ran for 152 yards and two touchdowns. San Jose State has earned the Dick Tomey Legacy Trophy, which goes to the winner of the SJSU-Hawaii match. Tomey was the head coach at every school.

What can be seen

Due to a surge in coronavirus cases in Honolulu, fans are not allowed to attend the game at the upgraded Clarence TC Ching Athletics Complex on campus. The Rainbow Warriors will play there for at least a couple of years as their former home, Aloha Stadium, is slated to be demolished at the end of next year.

The Spartans have to play cleaner football than they did in their first two games. San Jose State was beaten 21-0, including two pick sixes thrown by Nick Starkel. In addition, the Spartans committed 21 penalties for 184 yards. For comparison: your opponents were marked 10 times for 80 yards.

The state of San Jose must try to contain two-time threat quarterback Chevan Cordeiro. “They have a lot of playmakers on the offensive,” said San Jose head coach Brent Brennan, “but I think it all starts with him.” Cordeiro has run 891 yards and 125 this season. However, he threw five interceptions.
