    As the Buffs prepare for the final few games of the season, they will travel to Arizona to take on the Arizona schools. On Friday at 7pm live streaming from the Pac 12 website, CU will go to Tuscon to face the Wildcats. Then on Sunday at 6pm, the Buffs will travel to Tempe to face off against the Sun Devils. This is a great opportunity for them to sweep both schools and guarantee them a record above .500 as they only have games against Stanford and Utah left. When they last played these schools a month ago, they split beating Arizona St in 5 (17-25, 17-25, 25-18, 25-21, 15-9) but then lost to Arizona in 4 (22-25, 16-25, 27-25, 16-25). I would say we have a very good chance to finish the season winning 3 of 4 and having a record of 7-13, 17-15.

    Man - that would be a great finish to the season, and would show lots of improvement for the program

    It definitely would and with a young team, next year could be special.

    Before anyone gets too excited about the possibility of this type of ending to the season, remember that CU VB has not yet won an away conference match in the PAC-12. They went to Wassu, a team at the time with 0 PAC wins, a few weeks ago with an excellent chance to get CU's first conference road win and played really poorly, losing in a 3 embarassing set sweep. While I would love to see a 3-1 finish in these final 4 games I would not give that more than a tiny chance of happening.

    That's true but Oregon St and Wash St are the only teams in conference that we played on the road that aren't in the top ten. While Stanford I believe is #1, the other teams aren't exactly world beaters.

    Video streaming is very sketchy for me. Pac 12 server can't handle Baylor/Stanford basketball game and volleyball both. I sure hope they figure out how to stream.

    Streaming is working now for me. Think all those basketball fans are off the server.
