  • A total of 94 Washington players traveled to the Hawai'i game. Essentially, every player who is not injured or sick was able to make the trip.

  • UW sold its allotment of 2,700 tickets and university officials estimated the Washington contingent to be approximately 5,000.

  • The team was delayed by several hours on Friday prior to its travel to Hawai'i. An airplane mechanical issue prevented charter airline ATA from using its intended aircraft and a substitute was flown to Seattle from the East Coast to transport the team. The travel party departed Bank of America Arena at 10:15 a.m., departed SeaTac Airport at 5 p.m. and arrived at its hotel at approximately 10:30 p.m. (12:30 a.m. Pacific time).

  • The Husky Band sent 100 of its members to the game, in large part due to the generosity of a donor's assistance.

  • Washington QB Jake Locker's TD run on the Huskies' first drive of the game gave him 13 rushing TD's for the year, surpassing Mark Brunell for the most ever for a QB at UW. His 13 rushing TDs ties Locker with Hugh McElhenny (1951) for fifth on the UW single season chart

  • Louis Rankin's four kick returns for 100 yards including a 41-yard kickoff return to open the game, gave him 1,206 kick return yards in his career. He finished just behind Charles Frederick (1,329 from 2001-04) for fifth on the UW career list.

  • Entering the game, fullback Luke Kravitz had two career rushing TDs (both this season). He scored two of UW's first three TDs of the game in the first quarter.

  • Louis Rankin surpassed the 100-yard barrier early in the 2nd period and finished with 145 yards overall against Hawai'i. He has four 100-yard games this seson and seven in his career. He finished the season with 1,294 yards (5th all-time at UW) and his career with 2,154 overall (11th all-time at UW).

  • UW sophomore fullback Paul Homer scored his first career TD as a Husky with a one-yard plunge midway through the second quarter. The TD rush came after he caught a 10-yard reception from Jake Locker on the previous play. He appeared to have scored, but officials marked the ball just outside the goal line and UW's challenge was unsuccessful.

  • Jake Locker ended the season with 986 yards rushing, the best single season rushing performance for a quarterback in UW and Pac-10 history.
