Colorado vs. Arizona: Buffaloes head to the desert

Doug Pensinger

Colorado attempts to break a five game losing streak in a trip to Arizona.

It has been a rough season for the Colorado Buffaloes, who have not scored more than 17 points in each of their last five games. The fewest points they have given up in that stretch is 42, as the Buffs rank dead last at the FBS level in scoring defense and 122nd out of 124 teams in scoring offense.

Despite those gruesome number, Colorado will attempt to break a five game losing streak when it heads to Arizona on Saturday afternoon. The Wildcats are coming off of a highly disappointing 66-10 loss to UCLA where the Bruins led 42-3 at halftime and never looked back.

Colorado could have some space to move the football, as Arizona's defense is giving up 35 points per game after Saturday's loss. The Wildcats were rising high after a shocking 39-36 win over then No. 9 USC, but crashed back to earth when they visited UCLA.

The game carries an early 11:30 am Mountain Time kickoff and will be televised on FX.
