Colorado vs. Kansas: Game time, TV schedule and more

USA TODAY Sports

The Colorado Buffaloes will look to defeat old Big XII rival Kansas Jayhawks on Saturday.

The Colorado Buffaloes will face a former Big XII opponent on Saturday as they travel to Allen Fieldhouse to face the Kansas Jayhawks.

The Jayhawks are 6-1 on the season, and currently ranked No. 9 in the country. The team had three starters return from last season's team that made the national title game: seniors Elijah Johnson, Travis Releford and Jeff Withey.

Withey has been a force on both ends of the floor, averaging 14.6 points, 8.1 rebounds and 5.7 blocks per game. Releford is also a strong contributor on the offensive and defensive end, averaging 13 points, three assists and three rebounds per game while playing lockdown defense on the perimeter.

Johnson has struggled to start the season, dealing with multiple nagging injuries and some struggles shooting the ball. The guard is averaging five assists per game, but also turns it over three times per game. The injuries have also limited the senior's quickness on the defensive end, although Releford and standout freshman Ben McLemore should draw the Buffaloes leading scorer Spencer Dinwiddie.

Colorado enters Saturday's game having lost their last 29 games at Allen Fieldhouse. The two teams tip-off at noon MT, with coverage of the game on ESPN2.
