the Hawaii Rainbow Warriors hit the mainland to take on fourth-placed michigan wolverines on Saturday in a game between teams coached by their former star quarterback.
Timmy Chang played for Hawaii from 2000 to 2004, starting as the NCAA career leader in passing yards (17,072, since being broken by Houston’s Case Keenum). Chang is in his first season as coach of the Rainbow Warriors.
Jim Harbaugh finished third in voting for the Heisman Trophy for the 1986 season and was the Wolverines’ all-time leader in career passing yards (5,449). Harbaugh, who took over for Michigan in 2015, still ranks eighth on the list, 98 yards ahead of a guy named Tom Brady.

FOX Sports Betting Analyst Pick Sam Panayotovich:
It didn’t take long for our first 50-point differential of the season.
The Wolverines welcome a turnover-heavy Hawaii club to Ann Arbor, where opposing offenses tend to struggle. The Warriors have already given the ball away eight times in two games, and I can’t imagine life getting much easier against Michigan’s defense in front of 107,000 raucous fans.
Blue will obviously win big, but where’s the incentive to turn it up?
PICK: Less than 67.5 combined points scored (-110 on FOX Bet, bet $10 to win $19.09)
