Todd: Like the New Mexico bowl, this is one where the home team will usually get to play on it's own field (this will be the fourth time that Hawaii has appeared in the Hawaii bowl) so long as it has a winning record.  Which sucks for Arizona State, since that winning record is an impressive 10-3 with the 3 being close losses against conference champion (and BCS Buster) Boise State, Pac 10 #3 Oregon State, and our own beloved Crimson Tide.  They also lead the nation in passing, scoring, and total offense.  Do the Sun Devils stand much of a chance here?  Not really.  While they are certainly better than the Warriors on the defensive side of the ball, they've given up over 40 points three times this year on their way to 7-5 finish.  I'm picking Hawaii in a shoot out.

Nico: Warriors vs. Sun Devils. Perhaps the best mascot lineup of the bowl season. We obviously want Hawai'i to win this one so our one fairly quality win of the season will look even better.

Irrational Bama Fan: Bama is 2-1 against Hawaii, and has never faced Arizona State.  Therefor, SEC RULZ PAC10 DRULZZ!!!!!111
