    The Buffs seem to have been having some trouble with the alarm clock the last two games. *While their opponents have comfortably made it to the field wide awake and rarin' to go for the opening kickoff, CU has tried to pound the snooze button in vain. *Oregon State and USC put up a combined 45 points to Colorado's seven through the last two first quarters, which is especially painful when you consider that the Buffs outscored those two 52-47 over the other hour and a half of action.

    It hasn't been much better at the start of second halves this year, either. *Overall, CU is down 82-45 in third quarters in 2014. *The simple fact of the matter is that CU isn't using the locker room to their advantage. Once they find their feet, they play well enough, but whatever is being said behind closed doors is lost by the time they leave the tunnel. *Maybe it's nerves, maybe it's preparation, but the fact stands. *If the Buffs are ever going to get back in the win column this season, they need to perform better in the odd numbered quarters.

    --

    Kickoff from beautiful Folsom Field is scheduled for high noon tomorrow. *Televised coverage can be found on Pac-12 Networks, with the radio call on 850 KOA.

    *cough* For those interested, there's also a men's basketball scrimmage starting at 10am at the CEC. *It's free for all, and would make for a wonderful aperitif to your sports Saturday. *cough*
