EAST HARTFORD, Conn., -- It's not often Wyoming heads to the northeast to play a football game.

DJ Johnson and I had never been to Connecticut before, so this was a great opportunity to not only check out the Constitution State, but the surrounding area. We also had a pre-planned trip to Buffalo to take in a Bills game, too.

The day before Wyoming escaped with a 24-22 victory over UConn, we checked out the quaint town of Mystic. The Julia Roberts movie, Mystic Pizza, was based there. We had to try that. Not too shabby. We also found that we were just a stones throw from Rhode Island.

When would that opportunity ever come up again?

Here are just a few shots from our trip to the northeast:
