"Getting on the road is inevitable. I think this is a good test, a team that's 4-1 that gave us a great game last year. I think it's going to be a heckuva game," UMass coach Derek Kellogg said. "They're probably a little older, but we have youthful exuberance. I'm interested to see how we play. I'm anticipating the place will be sold out or close. It'll be a tough road environment."
