Colorado tries get back on track with long trek to Massachusetts to face Minutemen

Colorado is venturing east after its season opener went south.

Buffalo quarterback Sefo Liufau insists the players have put the baggage from a demoralizing 31-17 loss to Colorado State behind them.

Their focus Saturday will be squarely on Massachusetts, a team that has struggled since moving up to the Football Bowl Subdivision in 2012 but stayed with Boston College — for a half, anyway — last weekend.

This will be Colorado's first trip to the northeast since knocking off Army in West Point, New York, nearly 37 years ago. It marks one of the longest road trips in school history.
