Kickoff moved up for for Hawaii home games

HONOLULU — The kickoff time for the University of Hawaii’s four Western Athletic Conference home games at Aloha Stadium this season has been changed to 5:05 p.m. That’s an hour earlier than originally scheduled.

Hawaii athletics director Jim Donovan made the announcement Thursday. UH says the time change allows Hawaii’s four opponents — Fresno State, Boise State, Utah State and New Mexico State — to depart Honolulu later in the evening, thus saving their respective programs’ travel budgets an additional night of lodging.

Nice of them to consider the other schools' budgetary plights.

UH has it tough having to travel six times to the mainland, however, they are usually on a flight back to islands immediately after the game.

It's good to see WAC schools working together trying to save some $$ where ever they can.

You mean to say "allowing the programs to leave that evening instead of the next day", not "later in the evening."
When I read this, I thought "FINALLY" Athletic Departments are beginning to be fiscally responsible, or at least paying a little more attention to saving money. It's a good story and I think the UH AD deserves credit for doing this, even if it's a small gesture.
