    The Buffs Soccer Team (12-4-2, 4-3-2) will travel to Tuscon today at noon to face the Arizona Wildcats (7-7-4, 5-6-1). The Buffs are close to being ranked in the top 25 of the coaches poll and are coming off of a 2-2 tied against ASU, while Arizona is winless in their last 3 matches and are coming off of a 1-0 loss to Utah. The match will not be televised, but it will be shown online for free by the Pac-12 Network. Here is a short preview from cubuffs.com:

    And the game has begun. Looks like a beautiful day there. From when I've started watching, looks pretty even in time of possession. I haven't seen any great scoring chances yet from either side.

    One difficulty- the screen doesn't show time remaining, there are no announcers to occasionally let you know, and the livestats don't seem to be working. So... no idea of what the clock looks like. Anyway, still no score. I'd say UofAZ have had a few more chances, but non super dangerous looking, and CU just forced a (basic) save.

    Stats aren't working, so I guess you just have to guess at what's going on.

    One thing that is kind of fun, sounds like the mic is between both benches. Buffs recently had a nice centering pass (looked like to Bre Hooks?) that didn't quite connect and within a second or two you hear "Comon ref, she was holding" and "great job Alexa"

    I'd give AZ a small advantage in the 1st half. They did have 3-4 corner kicks, while I can't remember the Buffs having any. (I didn't see every minute, as I'm "Input surfing" between the Buffs and the KC-Bills football game.) When I was watching, I didn't see either goalie have to make an "A" level save.

    Looks like live stats may now be working, or at minimum they loaded numbers as of halftime. AZ has 9 shots, 5 on goal, while the Buffs are 4/4. AZ does have a 6-0 advantage in corner kicks.

    And the Buffs have their best chance. Bri Hooks from pointblank but goalie does a good job and comes out to cut the angle. Cu did get their 1st corner out of the play.

    0-3 to Arizona. This will be the Buffs first "bad loss" of the season. Really disappointing in that this was to a lower tier conference foe in a match the Buffs really needed.

    CU attack for the most part has looked anemic. Now they are in a "must win" situation at Utah next Friday if they want to secure an at-large berth in the NCAA tourney.

    Yep. I think our RPI was pretty good going into the weekend (#23), but the 0-1-1 hurt. Utah did have the better RPI (#33) than either AZ school, so a road win against them will be good, but we did probably lose our NCAA cushion. Oh well, Good luck to Volleyball in a couple hours- give the Huskies their 2nd loss!!!

    Horrible performance. They're better than that.
