    Honolulu, HI (KITV) — For a second time, the annual Picnic on the Path took over the University of Hawai’i at Manoa’s Legacy Path.

All of University of Hawai’i was fired-up getting ready for Friday night’s big homecoming game.

“I’m excited because we’re three and one, and this is our last year. So let’s make it big, we’re seniors,” said UH senior, Tyler Godinet.

University freshman, Ha’aheo Ahakuelo-Kepa has been following the Bows from the beginning.

“I went to the first two home games, killed it! And they’re gonna do really good, they’re having a good season, and I can’t wait for the game tomorrow. Go bows!” Ahakuelo-Kepa said.

Pono Ka’eo says the team started off strong, setting the tone of what could be a winning season.

“We’ve seen huge improvements already,” Ka’eo said, “and I can’t wait for the rest of the season. Go bows!”

Head Coach, Nick Rolovich brought back the “run and shoot” this season, the very same offense that carried the Warriors to a perfect “regular season” in 2007, Dylan La’anui believes the Bows can do it again.

“I’m gonna go 27-6 we’re gonna get a blocked field goal,” La’anui said. “I think our team is good. We got a good QB, we got a good coach right now. Everything’s going good. We’ve got a good flow going, I like it. We’ve got that momentum flowing for us this year,” La’anui said

Saturday night is a “green out” event, encouraging fans to fill the Aloha Stadium seats with a sea of green. Kick-off is scheduled for 6 p.m.
