The Warriors practiced for about 90 minutes today, then departed this afternoon for the mainland ahead of Saturday’s road game against Colorado.
As always, the 64-player travel roster was split this way: 30 on offense, 30 on defense, four specialists. And, as always, Scott Harding’s multiple roles gave the Warriors’ roster flexibility. UH is probably one of the few teams that can travel with two punters (Harding and Ruben Guzman) and two snappers (Brodie Nakama for FGs/PATs and Brian Hittner for punts).
Josh Donovan, who is not in the rotation at safety, made the travel squad as a special-teams player.
Because Ikaika Woolsey doubled as the holder, the Warriors were able to travel with four quarterbacks last year. This time, it will be just three quarterbacks: Woolsey, Jeremy Higgins and Taylor Graham.
