University of Hawaii quarterback Sean Schroeder’s “big concern right now is finding enough tickets so he can have his family there” for the Warriors’ season-opener at No. 1-ranked Southern California, head coach Norm Chow said.

Schroeder, a native of Laguna Niguel, Calif., “has waited a lifetime to play in that stadium (the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum,” Chow said on the Mountain West Conference coaches’ teleconference today.

The game will be the first college start for Schroeder, a redshirt junior who transferred from Duke where he was a lightly-used backup for two years.

“I think he will be fine,” Chow said. “He is mature. He understands and he is looking forward to it and all. And, so far, his nerves have been OK. He’s been calm and ready to go. We’ll find out on Saturday morning where it all goes.”

Asked if it was necessary to calm Schroeder, Chow quipped, “I think we have to calm the whole team down. Everybody is excited, Sean especially.”
