Bearcats Not Distracted By Surroundings At Aloha Stadium
November 22, 2002

Cincinnati coach Rick Minter knows his team has a tough task tomorrow in containing Hawaii's run-and-shoot offense.

But his concerns aren't focused solely on events inside Aloha Stadium.

He says Hawaii always has an advantage at home because its opponents have made a long trip and are likely to be distracted by the surroundings.

The Warriors are 8-2, have a five-game winning streak and are tops in the nation in total offense, second in passing offense and fifth in scoring offense.

Hawaii has won its last eight home games, dating back to last season. Cincinnati is 5-5.

Hawaii quarterback Timmy Chang, who also played his high school football games at Aloha Stadium, has thrown for 3,322 yards and 19 touchdowns in ten games this season.
