HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

Having already logged more than 10,000 travel miles flying to and from Sydney for last week's season opener, the Rainbow Warriors departed Honolulu on Wednesday for Ann Arbor ahead of Saturday's game against #7 Michigan.

Upon their return to Manoa, they'll have added an 9,000 additional frequent flier miles. A mid-September trip to Tucson, for the fourth game of the season, will bring their season total to nearly 25,000 miles, enough to have circumnavigated the globe.

Head coach Nick Rolovich says he's trying to get his team to learn from an explorer familiar with doing so.

"It's the Magellan mindset," Rolovich said, referring to Ferdinand Magellan, the first man to voyage entirely around the globe. "We're ready to explore the world. We gotta embrace it."

Rolovich has already cautioned his team against using the travel as an excuse in the event of mistakes on game day.

"The reality is, if they start looking for excuses, they'll find them," said Rolovich. "Really we have to look at it as an opportunity to go to Michigan and play a great team."

The Rainbow Warriors will land in Detroit on Thursday morning, then board buses for the 40-mile trip to Ann Arbor.
