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.
