BOULDER – When Colorado travels to the University of Denver on Saturday, it will be the next chapter in perhaps the biggest rivalry for the Buffs in soccer. CU has only been in the Pac-12 since 2011—not enough time to develop a big rivalry. But the Buffs and Pioneers have played 21 times in 21 seasons, including two NCAA Tournament matches, tied for the most meetings between CU and any other opponent (Colorado has also played Missouri and Texas A&M 21 times each).
After growing up just across the lake in Bellevue, Wheeler now looks to close out her Husky playing career with another year of strong play after already playing in 59 games for Washington over three seasons.
After another tournament victory this last week, the Washington Huskies return to Seattle for one last non-conference game this week before Pac-12 play starts. The Huskies will have a 7:00 pm PT matchup against the Seattle Redhawks on Friday, September 15.
