HONOLULU (KHNL) -- The Warrior football team is just nine days away from the biggest game in school history. Their practice schedule here at home wrapped up Sunday, and players were loose and happy to inch closer to game day.
They say the main goal for practice over the last two weeks was just to stay sharp and not lose that edge during this month-long break between games.
"We got a lot done and anxious to get on a plane and get to game week," said June Jones.
"We're feeding off the high of our 12-0 season and we're just carrying it into the post season," said Keala Watson. "It's really helped us get ready for this game. I mean, there was a lot of focus."
"Get a couple days off here and obviously, go out to New Orleans," said Colt Brennan. "get a week to get ready for that big game."
That big game, against Georgia in the Sugar Bowl on New Year's Day. It's the biggest game in school history -- a fact that helped fuel the Warriors to get through this down time.
"It gets pretty redundant doing the same thing over and over," said Watson. "But it's in the back of our mind that we're actually preparing for a game."
"Obviously we can't wait to strap it up against another opponent," said Brennan. "But we're lucky we got five weeks to get that game plan just as solid, as finished up and legit as we wanna do as possible."
Warriors fly out Christmas day and arrive in New Orleans on the 26th.
