College Football Schedule 2012: Beat-Up Buffaloes Try to Stymie Stanford

The Colorado Buffaloes have a tall task in slowing down Stanford this week, while the Colorado State Rams will try to buck the Wyoming Cowboys.


The beleaguered Colorado Buffaloes will have to do their utmost to avoid another embarrassing loss when they host the No. 14 Stanford Cardinal on Saturday.

Coach Jon Embree's Buffs (1-7) rank dead last in the FBS standings in scoring defense, having allowed 46 points per game this season. Last week's 70-14 demolition at the hands of the Oregon Ducks only sank Colorado further, and their lone win, over the Washington State Cougars, came by just one point. The Cardinal (6-2) represent a strong foe, and the Buffaloes will be hard-pressed to gain their second Pac-12 win this week.

The Colorado State Rams (2-6) haven't had it much easier, with last week's 42-27 victory over Hawaii snapping a six-game skid. They've got a chance to burnish their record this week with fellow Mountain West doormat Wyoming (1-7) as their opponent. The Cowboys are winless in MWC play.

Here's a look at the Pac-12 schedule, along with Colorado State's matchup.
