A bowl win would give this senior class 38 wins, matching the 2016 group for the most in program history.
“This is just another game in the books and I’m going to treat it as such,” senior right guard Marcus Oliver said. He paused for a moment before acknowledging, “but it’s definitely special.”
Players also consider a win and good showing in the Hawaii bowl as a chance to use it as springboard into next season.
“This is the last memory before going into next year,” junior center Will Noble said. “Through it all we’ve grown as a team. We’ve gotten a lot better and I think we are still getting better. I think we’re going to go out and show it.”
