Bulldogs have sour memories from last visit

The University of Hawaii football team will play today against a Fresno State squad that is planning on more focus during this visit to Aloha Stadium.

The 25th-ranked Bulldogs' last trip to Honolulu was for the Hawaii Bowl in December - they lost 45-10 to Southern Methodist.

"This isn't a pleasure trip, this is a business trip," said Fresno State coach Tim DeRuyter. "We're staying out of Waikiki."

The Bulldogs (3-0, 1-0 Mountain West) are playing on the road for the first time this season after a game against Colorado was canceled because of flooding.

"It's about how we play and how we prepare and how we go and execute," DeRuyter said. "Last year, we clearly didn't do a very good job of that and I didn't do a good job of coaching (in the bowl game)."

Hawaii (0-3, 0-1) has committed 11 turnovers this season, more than all but four other Bowl Subdivision teams. Fresno State's five takeaways include two interceptions by safety Derron Smith, the conference's preseason defensive player of the year.

Bulldogs quarterback Derek Carr has thrown for 1,121 yards and 12 touchdowns with one interception.
