Spending time on the islands during football season is not Washington coach Chris Petersen's idea of a vacation.
He learned the difficulty of taking a team to Hawaii when he was the head man at Boise State and a trip to Oahu to face the Rainbow Warriors was a part of conference play.
He's a fan of Hawaii, but not necessarily playing there.
Petersen made the trip with Boise State three times and went 2-1. So his debut at Washington will come in familiar territory when the No. 25 Huskies face Hawaii on Saturday night.
