Colorado’s Marty Puketapu is tied for the team lead with three goals this season.

The first lengthy road trip of the season for the Colorado women’s soccer team won’t be an easy one.

On Friday, the No. 25-ranked Buffs visit the University of Texas in a battle of unbeaten teams. CU’s only road game through its 4-0-2 start was for the season opener at Colorado State, and Friday’s contest against the 5-0 Longhorns marks the beginning of a stretch in which the Buffs play five of six games away from home.

A look at Friday’s matchup.

No. 25 Colorado women’s soccer at Texas

WHEN: Friday, 6 p.m. MDT, Myers Stadium, Austin, Texas

BROADCAST: Longhorn Network.

NOTABLE: The Buffs have opened the season with a team-record six shutouts and also bring a program-record scoreless streak of 607 minutes, 58 seconds into the match…CU is 4-12-4 all-time against Texas but hasn’t played the Longhorns since leaving the Big 12 Conference following the 2010 season…CU is one of just five Division I teams that has not yet allowed a goal. Only one of those other four teams has played six games…Buffs head coach Danny Sanchez is two wins away from No. 100 at the Division I level (62 at CU, 36 at Wyoming)…CU continues its road trip Sunday at Texas-San Antonio (6 p.m. MDT).
