The Colorado Buffaloes and Oregon Ducks are scheduled to play at the Coors Events Center in Boulder, Colorado on Saturday, February 4th at 7 p.m. MT, but the weather is not cooperating. Oregon's Friday flight to Denver has been cancelled due to snow, and now the Ducks are unsure when they will reach Boulder, according to Tom Kensler of the Denver Post. The Ducks and Buffaloes are in a three-way tie with the California Golden Bears for second place in the Pac-12 standings, so when Buffaloes head coach Tad Boyle heard the news, he cracked a smile and responded by saying "I hope they get here at 6:45."

The snow has also created problems for Oregon State, who lost 82-60 against Colorado on Thursday night, but now are struggling to find a flight out of Colorado to make their Saturday meeting with the Utah Utes.
