Buffs win!

The University of Colorado notches its first win in the new Pac-12 conference by beating the University of Arizona Wildcats at home last weekend by a score of 48-29.

It was a windy, blustery day with sustained 45 MPH winds that gusted up to 71 MPH in the 4th quarter. The Wildcats were favored by double digits but on Senior Day the Buffs and their end of year pride and effort would not be denied. 

The win also preserved Colorado's 87 year streak of at least one win at Folsom Field. They have not have blanked since playing at Folsom ever. That should be a given. This year it was in question. CU prevailed and maintained integrity in light of the Dan Hawkins era full of negative records.

On to the showdown!!!

The Colorado Buffaloes travel to Pasadena to take on the UCLA Bruins (5-5, 4-3 Pac-12) at the Rose Bowl.

Kick of is at 4:30 PM PST. The game will be televised nationally by Versus.

Colorado snapped a seven-game losing streak last Saturday and now turn its attention to ending a 22-game losing streak on the road.

Colorado is 50-10 against unranked opponents in November games dating back to the 1985 season.

UCLA is coming off a 31-6 loss at Utah in the snow, but still is the only team in the Pac-12 South that controls its own destiny to get the championship game on Dec. 2. The Bruins, while 5-5, have not lost back-to-back games this season.

CU and UCLA have played three times in California, the first two meetings in the L.A. Coliseum, but the last was in the Rose Bowl, a 31-17 Colorado win in 2003.

CU is closing a regular season with two road games for the first time since 1989 and just the second time in the last 38 seasons.

CU Tailgate Supreme
