The road can be a daunting place to win, especially in the Arena Football League, where last year even the best teams could do no better than break even away from home during the regular season. Even the champion Colorado Crush were 6-2 at home and 4-4 away. Now the Soul, after much home cooking, will hit the road for an extended period. The Soul have four straight road games, beginning tonight at Las Vegas against the Gladiators. In the following weeks, the Soul will visit Kansas City, Columbus and Dallas before returning home March 31 for a game against the Austin Wranglers.
