The Colorado women's soccer team played out of the state for the first time on Thursday at Marquette and also played while behind on the scoreboard for the first time this season. However, two goals in the game's final 22 minutes, including the winner from Megan Massey in the 85th minute, allowed CU to remain unbeaten with a 2-1 win. A look at the Buffs' match on Sunday at Michigan State, the final nonconference game away from home:
Colorado soccer at Michigan State
Kickoff: Sunday, 10 a.m., Lansing, Mich.
Records: CU 5-0-1; Michigan State 5-0-1.
Leaders: Colorado — Goals: F Tatum Barton, Jr., 6; Assists: MF Taylor Kornieck, Jr., 6; Goalies: JJ Tompkins, Jr., .882 save percentage, 0.54 save percentage; Scout Watson, Sr., 1.000 save percentage, 0.00 goals-against average.

Notes: A win or a tie would give the Buffs their longest unbeaten streak to start a season in program history. CU started 4-0-2 last year and 6-0 in 2013 but lost the seventh game of the season both times...Nine different players already have scored goals for the Buffs. Eight different players scored goals for CU the entire 2017 season...With 23 assists through six games, the Buffs are well on their way toward breaking the team record of 35 assists set in 2004 and 2014...CU has played Michigan State just once, suffering a 2-1 overtime loss at home in 2016...Tompkins' next win will be the 30th of her CU career. She will be the fourth Buffs goalkeeper to reach that mark...The Buffs return home for their final two nonconference games, hosting Utah Valley on Thursday and Denver on Sept. 16.
