Locally, it’s the big prep showdown between the two programs that have dominated the MIL over the past decade, or so. Baldwin and Lahainaluna will square off in a 7 p.m. game before an anticipated large crowd at War Memorial Stadium. Tomorrow night, King Kekaulike visits across-the-street rival Kamehameha-Maui. Both games will be aired on ESPN 550.
On Oahu, the University of Hawaii – led by star quarterback Bryant Moniz — kicks off its season by facing Colorado on Saturday at Aloha Stadium. The game is scheduled for a 4:15 p.m. kickoff and will be aired on AM 900.
Two Maui boys – defensive tackle Kaniela Tuipulotu and offensive guard Andrew Faaumu – are scheduled to start against the Buffaloes.
On the mainland, a pair of huge early-season games with national implications on Saturday. No. 3 Oregon will square off against No. 4 LSU at Cowboys Stadium in Dallas. That game will be aired on ESPN 550 starting at 2 p.m. Also on Saturdy, No. 5 Boise State plays a virtual road game against No. 19 Georgia.
Meantime, the 10th-ranked Rainbow Wahine improved their volleyball record to 4-0 with a stunning demolition of No. 22 Ohio State last night at the Stan Sberrif Center by scores of 25-18, 25-23, 25-14. Senior Chanteal Satele led the Wahine with 11 kills. Those matches will air on OC Sports.
