November 20, 2018 (San Diego) - With men's basketball away at the Maui Jim Invitational, it was just football sitting down with the media at this week's press conference.  Head coach Rocky Long was joined by senior defensive end Anthony Luke and senior offensive tackle Ryan Pope.

“Obviously, we got another game this week," Long opened with.  "I think both teams will be excited about playing each other. We’re teams with very similar talent levels. They (Hawaii) throw the ball around like crazy. They’ve got one of the leading passers in the country, a couple of the leading receivers in the country, and they throw the ball a bunch, so they’re up there near the top in passing yardage and those kinds of things. After I watched the (Chiefs-Rams) game last night, when they throw it around like that, I mean, it makes it really, really hard on the defense. So our offense has to keep the ball away from them or we’re going to have to play really, really well on defense.”
