Buffaloes Volleyball takes down #1 Washington

For the second week in a row the Buffs have scored a huge upset.

For the second week in a row the Buffaloes volleyball team has scored a huge Friday night win over a ranked team in Boulder. This time the Buffs upped the ante, taking down the #1 ranked Washington Huskies 3 sets to 1. It's time to take notice of this team. Liz Kritza has turned things around in Boulder and it's another strong Pac-12 sport where the Buffs are making noise.

Here's more from CUBuffs.com:

The University of Colorado volleyball team shocked the top-ranked Washington Huskies on Friday night by handing them their first loss of the 2013 season, winning 3-1 (25-17, 26-24, 15-25, 25-19) at the Coors Events Center.

"I don't think it has hit me yet," senior Kerra Schroeder said. "At the same time, I think that we finally played to our potential, and I don't think that anyone in the Pac-12 is ready for it. I'm not even shocked that we played so well. It's awesome that we finally did."

This was the Buffs second win over a ranked opponent in eight days as they defeated No. 11 UCLA in five sets on Sept. 27, also at the Coors Events Center. The last time CU defeated two ranked teams in such a short span was in 2005 when the Buffs beat Kansas State (3-2) on Oct. 12 and Texas A&M (3-2) on Oct. 16. KSU was ranked 20th and TAMU was 24th.
