The Island Showdown (also known as the Hawaii–UNLV football rivalry) is the trophy awarded to the winner of the Battle for the Pacific, an American college football rivalry game played annually by the Hawaii Rainbow Warriors football team of the University of Hawaii at Manoa (Hawaii) and the UNLV Rebels football team of the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV). It was known as the Pair-O-Dice trophy in 2016. The Island Showdown trophy was introduced on October 31, 2017.
The first game between the teams was in 1969 with Hawaii defeating UNLV. In 2017, the trophy was built and UNLV won the Island Showdown trophy. The current holder is Hawaii, following a 21–7 victory in 2019 at Sam Boyd Stadium in Whitney, Nevada. Hawaii has the longest win streak in the rivalry, holding the record for sixteen consecutive years.
