The Buffaloes best chance to win a conference game will now have to come on the road.

Vegas nailed the Colorado line this past weekend against Arizona, unfortunately, this past weekend as the Buffaloes fell by seven at home. Hopefully, the oddsmakers will be at least four points off this weekend as the Buffs head to Corvallis to take on the Oregon State Beavers as 3.5-point underdogs.

After a heartbreaking loss to the Wildcats saw the Buffaloes shut out Arizona for two straight quarters and enter the fourth with a seven-point lead this weeks match-up against the Beavers will likely be the best shot for this team to finally win a Pac-12 game again.

Oregon State has struggled in the first year of former Wisconsin coach Gary Anderson's tenure. Wins over Weber State and San Jose State in the first three weeks led to blowout losses to Stanford, Arizona and Washington State, respectively.

The Beavers have started true freshman Seth Collins all season and have ridden the rollercoaster that usually accompanies going with youth at such an important position. Collins is currently 77-149 for 813 yards with six touchdowns and four interceptions.

The road hasn't been kind to Mike MacIntyre's Buffaloes (or Jon Embree's or Dan Hawkins' for that matter) but if Colorado can't figure out how beat the Beavers we be starting to ask, when?
