Hawaii changes Wisconsin date, adds series vs. Army

By Kevin Kelley -

Yesterday, the Hawaii Rainbow Warriors announced the addition of several games to their future football schedules.

First, there was the addition of two games to an existing series with the Arizona Wildcats. The two schools will now meet in Tucson in 2016 and 2020 and in Honolulu in 2019 and 2025.

Then there was a three-game series announced with the Oregon Ducks. Hawaii will travel to Eugene to face the Ducks in 2020 and 2023 and will then host Oregon in 2024.

Hawaii also announced a couple of FCS additions: Western Carolina on Sept. 2, 2017 and Fordham on Sept. 12, 2020.

Upon reviewing the future schedules on their official website, a date change was noticed plus another addition.

Hawaii and Wisconsin, originally scheduled to play the second game of a three-game series on Sept. 4, 2021 in Honolulu, will now meet to open the 2024 season on Aug. 31. The two teams will still meet in Madison on Sept. 17, 2022.

Hawaii has also added two additional games against the Army Black Knights, per their website. The Rainbow Warriors will travel to Michie Stadium in West Point on Nov. 19, 2022 and will then host Army at Aloha Stadium on Nov. 30, 2024.

Hawaii and Army were already scheduled to meet on Sept. 15, 2018 in West Point and Nov. 30, 2019 in Honolulu.

Hawaii Football Schedules

BYU does not play Pac-12 opponents in the last week of November in upcoming 15-week seasons (2019, 2024, 2025) so with Hawaii going non-conference against Army that weekend in 2019 and 2024, perhaps we see BYU vs MWC with the Mountain West left with 11 teams to schedule.

Seems clear that Hawai’i closing down football is less and less likely with each additional contract.
