Q2 9:41 a.m .: Big race for Donovan Edwards during his first postponement. 25 meters in Hawaii Territory. He then made a huge 33-yard catch on the next play.

Q1 1:35 p.m.: Jaylen Harrell puts the pressure on and forces an incomplete pass to force a punt in Hawaii.
Q1 3:00 p.m.: Hawaii wins toss, elects to host. They start at their own 25.
Michigan enters Week 2 as a heavy favorite at home against Hawaii. In fact, it’s the largest point spread in Michigan football program history at 51 points. But that’s not the biggest story.
The ongoing quarterback battle between Cade McNamara and JJ McCarthy could be settled this week. McCarthy will get his first start this time around.
McNamara didn’t really turn it on last week against Colorado State, going 9 of 18 for 136 yards and a touchdown. He didn’t get a ton of help from his receivers, as there were several drops, but he didn’t do much to separate.
McCarthy didn’t throw much – completing all four of his passes – but he rushed three times for 50 yards, highlighted by a 20-yard touchdown run. He’ll probably have a better chance of showing his arm on Saturday night.
