The Colorado Buffaloes (4-4, 1-4 Pac-12) head to Tempe, Arizona on Saturday, Nov. 4 for a matchup with the Arizona State Sun Devils (4-3, Pac-12 3-1). The game is scheduled for a 7 pm MT start time with a national telecast on Pac-12 Networks.
CU won for the first time in series history last season at Folsom Field with a 40-16 victory, snapping a seven-game losing skid going back to 2006. In that contest, Phillip Lindsay battered the Sun Devils defense rushing for 219 yards and three touchdowns. Prior to last year, the Sun Devils’ average margin of victory over the Buffaloes was 26.4 points per game so it was nice to see that narrative change in that blowout.
Arizona State has gone through an up-and-down season by dropping two-of-three non-conference games (vs. San Diego State, at Texas Tech), but they’ve picked up upsets over then-No. 5 Washington and Utah. Todd Graham’s team hopes to pull off another upset and faces No. 21 USC this week. The Trojans stumbled in the polls following last Saturday’s 49-14 blowout loss vs. No. 13 Notre Dame.
Colorado has a chance to pick up their first-ever victory at Sun Devil Stadium in two weeks.
