The Huskies didn't arrive to postcard-perfect Hawaii, but at least they arrived.
After about six hours of delays at SeaTac due to mechanical troubles and then a wait for a new plane, the Huskies finally arrived in Honolulu about 9 p.m. local time.
They went staight to the hotel, as they had planned anyway, since Aloha Stadium was being used for the state high school championship football games. Still, clearly that delay can't have possibly helped their chances today, when they meet No. 11 Hawaii at 8:30 p.m.
It rained much of the evening, as while it isn't raining as I write this -- about 10 hours from kickoff -- there is far more cloud than blue sky above, and there seem to be pockets of showers over the Pacific.
