HONOLULU — Middle Tennessee State University and the University of Hawai‘i will meet in the 2016 Hawai‘i Bowl, 3 p.m., Saturday, Christmas Eve, at Aloha Stadium.

The Rainbow Warriors, runner-up in the MW’s West Division, are coached by Nick Rolovich, who in just his first season turned around a program that went 3-10 a year ago.

“I can’t tell you how proud I am of this team and especially these seniors who’ll be able to say they played in a bowl game,” Rolovich said. “We’re thankful for this opportunity to showcase our program and our university on a national stage against a very good Middle Tennessee team who we have great respect for. I know our players are proud to represent the Mountain West and will look forward to the challenge to end the season on a winning note.”

UH won its final two games of the regular season including a 46-40 victory over UMass in the finale to reach six wins. The Warriors return to the Hawai‘i Bowl where they appeared in six of the first nine games, having scored 40 or more points in their three wins.
