The University of Hawai‘i announced several date changes and new opponents to its future football schedules.
UH and New Mexico State have agreed to play a home-and-home football series in 2020 and 2021. The teams will play Sept. 5, 2020 in Honolulu and Sept. 25, 2021 in Las Cruces, N.M.
The teams last played in 2011 while both were members of the Western Athletic Conference. The teams played annually from 2005-11 with the Rainbow Warriors winning each time. UH leads the all-time series 8-0.
With the addition of NMSU in 2020, the UH-Arizona game in Tucson, Ariz., originally scheduled for Sept. 5 will now be played on Aug. 29.
Hawai‘i will play a single game at Arizona State of the Pac-12 Conference Sept. 19, 2026. The game will mark UH’s first trip to Tempe since 1958 and the first meeting between the schools since the 2006 Hawai‘i Bowl in Honolulu.
The teams have played seven times with ASU holding a 5-2 advantage. Two of those games were played in Tempe – 1954 and ’58, both won by the Sun Devils.
UH has also added single games versus Portland State in 2021 (Sept. 4) and Duquesne in 2022 (Sept. 20). Both games will be played in Honolulu. UH and PSU last played in 2000 and the Warriors own a 4-1 advantage in the series. The 2022 match-up between Hawai‘i and Duquesne will mark the first-ever meeting.
UH and Vanderbilt have agreed to move a previously scheduled game in 2023 to Aug. 26. That game will be played in Nashville, Tenn.
