The Colorado Buffaloes have done almost nothing except for lose this season, with their latest dropped game coming against UCLA, 42-14. Fortunately for the Buffs, they'll get some extra time to recuperate with a bye week on the schedule.

They'll have plenty to do during the bye week, with problems mounting more and more as the season goes along. Tackling has been a particularly big problem defensively, while the offense has just seemed a step off on a lot of plays. Jon Embree will be using the bye to help the Buffs re-learn some of their fundamentals:

"A bye week is good for getting back to the fundamentals — really focusing on the little things and getting back to what we were doing really well in (August) camp," quarterback Jordan Webb said.

The Buffs will be back in action on Oct. 11 when they host the Arizona State Sun Devils at Folsom Field, looking for their second win of the season. If they can get the fundamentals and a few of their banged-up players back, it can't hurt their chances of at least putting up numbers a bit more respectable than the ones they showed in the UCLA beatdown.
