Coming up on Sunrise this morning

Good Season Opener Day Sunrisers!

Yes, it's all about football. Steve, Taizo and I will be live from Aloha Stadium as the Warriors prepare to take on and take down the USC Trojans. We have some great guests lined up including Coach Greg McMackin, sports writer Stephen Tsai and UH Associate Athletics Director John McNamara.

How do players get psyched up before a big game? Steve sits down with former Warrior Leonard Peters to find out.

Worried about parking? Don't be. Taizo will have some tips on when the gates open, alternate parking sites and new bus service to the stadium if you're headed out to the game.

The UH Band will give us a preview of their halftime performance. The cheerleaders will show us how they hope to be more interactive with the fans. Should we form a pyramid out of the Sunrise crew?

Want to BBQ Morton's steaks for the game? We're giving away a prize pack that you can take with you to the stadium to grill up some beef.

And of course, we'll bring you the latest news of the day. Here are some highlights.
