Soccer Announces Fall Schedule

Jun 29, 2021

BOULDER – Colorado soccer is set to return this fall with a complete 19-game schedule. The Buffaloes will play nine matches at Prentup Field and will have 10 total matches broadcast on the Pac-12 Networks. 

Colorado, coming off its 12th NCAA Tournament appearance, will open the season with an exhibition at Air Force (Aug. 14). The match against the Falcons marks the return of the Colorado Cup. The Colorado Cup has not been challenged since the 2018 season. CU has won the cup five times since its inception in 2011.  

CU's first official match of the season will be the second leg of the Colorado Cup, hosting Colorado State on Aug. 19. The third and final Colorado Cup match for the Buffs will be on Aug. 22 against Colorado College in Denver. It will be CU's first game against the Tigers since its 1-0 double-overtime win in 2017.  

The Buffs will close out the month of August with a marquee matchup against 2020 national runner-up, Florida State (Aug. 29). It will be the third meeting between the two schools and the Seminole's first visit to Boulder. 
Colorado has a packed September, starting with a trip to Fort Worth, Texas, to take on TCU on Sept. 2. The Buffs return to Prentup Field for a pair of matches against Stony Brook (Sept. 5) and Cal State Fullerton (Sept. 9). The team then makes its first visit to Purdue since 2011 to take on the Boilermakers on Sept. 12, before closing out the non-conference season with a visit to Denver on Sep. 19. 

CU opens the 11 game Pac-12 season on the road in Berkley, Calif., taking on the Bears on Sept. 25. 

The Silver and Gold's home conference schedule features Washington (Sept. 30), Washington State (Oct. 3), Stanford (Oct. 17), Oregon (Oct. 21) and Oregon State (Oct. 24). 

The remaining road slate includes stops at Southern California (Oct. 7), UCLA (Oct. 10), Arizona State (Oct. 28), Arizona (Oct. 31) and Utah (Nov. 5).
