Bows gear up for longest road trip of the season

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - For the Rainbow Warrior football team, the goal is clear: win.

If the team thought these past seven games were rough, the schedule won't get any easier as it faces a 10-day, near 10,000 mile road trip.

The continental United States has not been kind to the Bows.  Hawaii has lost its last 10 road games dating back to 2011, which is the second-longest streak in school history.

UH will look to change that Saturday when it faces the Aggies of Utah State.  A week later, they'll face Navy in Annapolis.

After Saturday's loss to Colorado State, head coach Norm Chow said he needs this team to look ahead.

"I told them I appreciated every effort they've given me," Chow said. "I told them put this (inaudible) thing in the rear view mirror. We got a tough two-game road trip coming up and by golly we're gonna fight, we're gonna fight. That's what I told them. That's exactly what I told them!"

The Bows leave later this week.  Saturday's kickoff is 10 a.m. Hawaii time.
