The Lowdown: No Buff fan has forgotten what the Bulldogs did to the Buffs last year. Now that Colorado has looked to be at least a bit improved this game takes on an even more important meaning. After taking down Rutgers in a close 52-51 overtime win, the Bulldogs had a much easier time with Cal Poly at home and are now looking for their first 3-0 start since 2004. The Bulldogs sit just outside the Top 25, coming in No. 27 in both the Coaches and AP polls.
