COLORADO BUFFALOES (4-5, 1-5)
vs. No. 23 ARIZONA (6-3, 4-2)
BOULDER — Deion “Coach Prime” Sanders’ Colorado Buffaloes are hoping the third time in three weeks is a charm.
For the third straight week, the Buffs will face off with a nationally ranked opponent Saturday when they play host to No. 23 Arizona in a noon game at Folsom Field (Pac-12 Networks).
The Buffs do have a win against a ranked foe this year, their 45-42 win over then-No. 17 TCU in the season opener.
But since then, Colorado has come up short four times against ranked teams, including UCLA and Oregon State in the last two weeks.
Saturday’s game will be the home finale for Colorado this season, as the Buffs will also mark Senior Day and Military Appreciation Day. The game is a sellout and will mark the 10th time in 10 games this year that Colorado has played in front of a sold-out crowd. Georgia, Tennessee and Notre Dame are the only other schools in the nation to achieve that feat this season.
The nuts and bolts from Saturday’s game:
KICKOFF: Noon (MT), Folsom Field (50,183).
TV, RADIO: The game will be televised by the Pac-12 Network with Ted Robinson and Yogi Roth in the booth and Ashley Adamson on the sidelines.
