The Colorado Buffaloes will try to get back into the win column as they host the No. 14 Stanford Cardinal at Folsom Field on Saturday.

The Buffs are licking their wounds after a 70-14 drubbing at the hands of the Oregon Ducks. In fact, after beating Washington State on on Sept. 22, Colorado has lost four straight games by an average score of 53-13. Not much has gone right for the Buffs, as the nation's No. 107 offense shares the practice field with the No. 117 defense. Offensively, quarterback Jordan Webb has completed just 56% of his passes for eight touchdowns and seven interceptions. On defense, Colorado gives up 46 points per game.

Stanford is 6-2 after squeaking out a 24-17 home victory over Washington State. Running back Stepfan Taylor has rushed for 113 yards per game with six touchdowns on the season. The Cardinal rank only 90th in total offense, as quarterback Josh Nunes has completed 53% of his passes for 1,620 yards, ten touchdowns, and seven interceptions.

Date/Time: Sat., Nov. 3, 12:00 p.m. MT

TV: FX

Odds: Stanford by 28 points
