    Colorado Daily – UCLA

    October 26th

    CU in a few minutes …

    Colorado a 20.5-point underdog to UCLA

    Colorado will be on the road this weekend, taking on UCLA in the Rose Bowl (1:00 p.m., MT, Pac-12 Networks). The Buffs, according to 5dimes.com, is a three touchdown underdog, coming in at 20.5-points down.

    Other Pac-12 lines:

    Arizona Sate is a 1.5-point favorite at home against Oregon (Thursday night)

    USC is a 6.0-point favorite on the road against Cal

    Utah is a 23.5-point favorite at home against Oregon State

    Stanford is a 13.0-point favorite on the road against Washington State

    … No line yet posted for Arizona at Washington …

    Buffs’ late arrival home from Corvallis results in team getting two days off

    Press release from cubuffs.com …

    With our late arrival home (5:32 a.m. back in Boulder) and no bye week this season, the coaches have given the players the next TWO days off, so no football activity until they resume practice on Tuesday (8:30-11). So the first interview window is after that practice and then normal from there on out.

    Buffs not satisfied with just one Pac-12 victory

    From Neill Woelk at cubuffs.com … Maybe the best news coming out Saturday night’s Colorado win over Oregon State — well, other than the fact that the Buffs ended a Pac-12 win drought, earned a much-needed conference road win, played their best defense of the year and moved back to .500 for the season — is that even as the 4-4 Buffs were celebrating their win, they were looking ahead to more.

    “This is just one,” head coach Mike MacIntyre said, merely minutes after Chidobe Awuzie’s fourth-quarter interception nailed down a 17-13 CU win. “We have to build on this and get some more.”

    Players echoed MacIntyre’s sentiments. In almost the same breath of talking about the importance of getting their first Pac-12 win in nearly two years, players also talked about the importance of next week’s game at UCLA. They talked — confidently — about adding more wins to their ledger, and how their preseason goal of a bowl game is still on the table.

    Simply, they talked about the end of the skid as the beginning of something much bigger, one piece of a foundation they plan on adding to soon.

    Bruins still playing with a chip on their shoulders

    From the Los Angeles Times … UCLA Coach Jim Mora was heard before he was seen after the California game Thursday night at the Rose Bowl.

    He was loudly cursing at a UCLA official as he entered a news conference.

    This after the Bruins won.

    UCLA’s 40-24 victory over No. 20 Cal, which came after back-to-back losses, did little to immediately ease the tension around Westwood.

    Mora provided the first example. Then safety Randall Goforth entered the interview room and loudly proclaimed, “We hear what the outside noise is. I’m not going to sugarcoat anything. All we do is do what we do every day. We work hard, we come to practice, we go to meetings, and we’re just like everybody else.

    “Everybody believes just like we believe, so we don’t fear anybody, and we’re ready to play with whoever’s out there on the field,” Goforth said. “So, you know, I don’t think a lot of people understand the coverage contours or the sequence of what happens on the field on every play. So, you know, all we do is go out there and play, and as you can see, it shined tonight.

    “So, like I said, everybody continue to doubt us, and all we’re going to do is sit there and work. Thank you guys.”

    He then left without taking questions.

    UCLA was favored to win Thursday’s game, but Mora managed to foster a no-one-believes-in-us chip on his players’ shoulders.
