Hawaii Football Investigated For Alleged Point Shaving

The Hawaii Warriors football program is being investigated for alleged points shaving by players, reports the Honolulu Star-Advertiser. The university's president acknowledged the investigation and released a statement saying that the school received an anonymous letter tipping them off to the alleged point shaving. This led the university to report it to the police and the NCAA.

There is no word on how many players were involved or in which game(s) this happened. The Warriors defeated the Colorado Buffaloes, 34-17 to open the season, which the Denver Post reports as having come in under the over/under of 54.

A more likely candidate, if it was just one game, is the Warriors' loss to the UNLV Rebels, which Ryan Greene, the beat writer for HeyReb.com, points out (on Twitter) as being suspicious:

The #UNLV money line when it hosted #Hawaii opened at around +1600. By kickoff, it was around +700. Pretty mysterious movement at the time.

Greene, however, believes there were odds things about the Warriors' games against Utah State and new Mexico State.

This could get ugly in a hurry.
