Hawaii enjoys muddy practice in Sydney, Australia

  The Hawaii football team practiced in the rain three days before its kickoff vs. Cal in Australia.

One of the perks to going to Hawaii to play college football is the beautiful, sunny weather almost all-year round.

But on Wednesday, the Rainbow Warriors saw the opposite conditions amid its fourth practice before its season opener against California.

Hawaii and Cal will play in Sydney, Australia on Saturday to kick off the 2016 college football season. While both teams have been enjoying everything the city has to offer in this week's preparation, Wednesday's dreary conditions made for a rainy, muddy practice.

The Rainbow Warriors were unfazed by the weather though and embraced the conditions by ending their practice by lining up as a team and sliding head first into the field's muddy puddles.

The weather forecast for Saturday's game as of now calls for a sunny zero-percent chance of rain day in Sydney, but if Wednesday's practice is any indication, Hawaii is ready to play in any conditions Mother Nature has to offer.
