I don't know. I think it depends on how he's ranking these games. Is it by order of importance, or by toughest opponent? Or maybe most exciting from a fan stanpoint? It's not clear from the article. I think there's a big distinction here between the avid UH fan and the casual college football fan. The avid UH fan knows the Navy game is infinitely more important than the Tech game (and the Arizona game for that matter). But from a casual obvserver standpoint (most casual fans love to see offense), the Tech game is going to involve a whole lot of offense and therefore be more exciting.
But, for what it's worth, I would have Navy higher than Tech and Zona because I'm an avid UH fan and I want to see a conference championship and NY6 game again.
