Hawaii to Play a 2007 Game in Australia?

Why on earth would we be running a photo of the Australian Rules Football champion Sydney Swans? It's because college football could be headed to the Land Down Under. Hawaii is attempting to schedule a regular-season game in August of 2007 in Sydney. This idea started when the Swans worked out recently at Hawaii's grass practice field during a stop in Honolulu after a series of exhibition matches in California. The Swans have agreed to serve as host and have offered use of all facilities, including 42,000-seat Sydney Stadium. An opponent has not been determined, but the Swans insist that the game must count in the standings.
