SEATTLE - For the fourth-straight week the UW women's soccer team will battle teams on the road, facing Colorado on Friday and Utah on Sunday in Pac-12 play. Friday's match will air live on the Pac-12 Networks at 2 p.m. PT.
Washington is 7-2-1 on the year and 0-1-1 in Pac-12 play, dropping last weekend's conference opener at USC, 1-0 in overtime.
