The Colorado Buffaloes travel to play the Arizona Wildcats on the road this Saturday hoping to win their first conference game of the season. They're currently 1-9 on the year overall and have lost all six of their Pac-12 games, a pretty disappointing showing for the team's debut season in the conference.
The Wildcats, on the other hand, have stumbled to a 2-7 record despite having the fourth-best passing offense in the country. Quarterback Nick Foles is a legitimately impressive talent, but those impressive yardage figures are partially the result of Arizona trying to pass its way back into games after digging itself into holes.
Game time, date: 12:30 p.m. MT, Saturday, Nov. 12, 2011
Location: Folsom Field, Boulder, CO
TV channel: FCS Pacific
Spread: Arizona is favored by 11.5 points.
Series history: Colorado leads all-time series, 12-1. Arizona won most recent meeting, though, 24-21 in 1986.
