More on the Rainbow Warriors

Many associate Hawaii with white sand beaches, fiery volcanoes, and amazing sunsets. But this year, Hawaii's football team is grabbing all the headlines.

For the first time ever, the University of Hawaii's Rainbow Warriors football team is undefeated, winning their first ever appearance in the Bowl Championship Series. The students will soon face-off with the Georgia Bulldogs, from the University of Georgia, in the upcoming Sugar Bowl.

Veteran sports commentator Bobby Curren discusses the team's remarkable success story, which is recognized in the program's Fascinating in '07 series.
