The college football season is upon us and this seems like as good as any time to list the University of Hawaii Warriors football schedule for the 2012 season. There are a total of 12 games with six home and six away contests. The men of Manoa call Aloha Stadium their home.
The middle of the schedule has five away games out of seven and even tougher, four road battles with only one home game separating them. Hawaii will play five schools who were bowl teams a year ago and another that is #1 in the country (USC). All times listed are local to the game.

* Means Mountain West Conference games
If you didn't know, when the Warriors travel with back-to-back games, they stay on the mainland for the second contest - which will happen twice this season. This is Hawaii's debut in the Mountain West Conference which will change structure again next year with two teams leaving and two more coming onboard. The note that the Warriors will not play the Wyoming Cowboys, who are another Mountain West team. It's just as well since the two schools are 3,500 miles apart. They don't play next year either but will commence conference play against each other in 2014.

Through thick and thin, Daryle has been a huge fan of college football as well as Hawaii, visiting there as a second home for over 40 years. Go 'Bows!
