    [h=3]Colorado Daily – Arizona [/h]October 20th
    Wear black … or pink … to Homecoming this weekend
    From CUBuffs.com … It will be a busy week for the University of Colorado football faithful. On top of the normal pageantry accompanying all football games, Saturday’s game with the Arizona Wildcats (6 p.m., Pac-12 Networks), is CU’s annual Back To Boulder Homecoming Game and the Buffs are encouraging fans to Blackout Breast Cancer.
    The game has been slated as the Breast Cancer Awareness game for a while and when the Pac-12 Networks selected the game with a 6 p.m. start time, the Buffs decided to designate the game Blackout Breast Cancer and fans are encouraged to wear black and pink to the game.
    CU has teamed up with Boulder Community Hospital and Safeway*for Breast Cancer Awareness for the second straight season and Safeway will host a pink area for breast cancer survivors who will be participating in the Blackout Breast Cancer activities throughout the game as part of a bigger Safeway Game Day Experience.
    Tagged as the Ultimate Free Football Tailgate, gates to the 18,000-square-foot Safeway Game Day Experience will open from 2 p.m. until kickoff. There will be a media room airing live football games, football-themed video games, an old-school arcade with foosball, pop-a-shot and Pac-man, a DJ, a photo booth, 20 giant HD TVs, free food and drinks, prizes and giveaways, a mascot named Tank the Tail-gator and much more.
    CU’s Breast Cancer Awareness weekend will also encompass athletics events on Friday, starting with the soccer game at 3 p.m. at Prentup Field against USC and then the volleyball match that night at 7 p.m. against Arizona at the Coors Events Center.
    CU’s Homecoming Week 2013 is sponsored by the CU Student Government among others and starts Monday with a variety of events, large and small, occurring throughout the week all over campus, culminating with the Homecoming Parade and football game on Saturday. The theme for this year’s Homecoming Parade is “Colorado Pride” and CU Senior Associate Athletic Director Ceal Barry will be honored as the Grand Marshall.
    Back To Boulder Homecoming Weekend 2013 is a series of great events put on by the Alumni Association starting Thursday with the 84th Annual Alumni Association Awards Ceremony at the Boulderado Hotel and running through the football game Saturday night.
    For more information about Homecoming Week 2013, please visit www.cuhomecoming.com and for more information about the Alumni Association Back to Boulder Weekend, please visit alumni.colorado.edu/back2boulder.
    And don’t forget to wear your black and pink and help cheer on the Buffs to a victory over Arizona.

    Colorado*a 15.5 point underdog to Arizona
    According to vegasinsider.com, the Buffs are a 15 1/2-point underdog to the Wildcats this weekend.
    Perhaps its*because the Buffs covered the 31-point spread in beating Charleston-Southern … but the early money seems to be on Colorado.
    The line opened at 17-points for the Wildcats …

    Stanford back into; UCLA out of top ten
    No. 13 Stanford defeated No. 9 UCLA 24-10 Saturday, with the teams swapping positions in the new AP poll.
    Oregon remains at No. 2 behind solidly entrenched Alabama. Stanford moved up five spots to No. 8, while UCLA moved down three spots to No. 12. The Cardinal still have the loss to Utah on their resume, but Stanford is now the highest-rated one loss team in the nation.
    No other teams from the Pac-12 are ranked, with No. 20 Washington falling out of the poll after losing big to Arizona State, 53-24. Surprisingly, the Sun Devils did not move into the poll, sitting just outside at No. 26 (Nebraska is No. 25, moving into the poll after an impressive – denote sarcasm – win over Purdue).
    Three other Pac-12 teams received votes this week, with Oregon State coming in at No. 28, with Utah and Washington tied for the No. 33 spot.
    The Associated Press poll of October 20th:
    1Alabama (55)7-01495
