    Once again, congrats to the team for the great wins!

    (Hope they enjoy the Labor Day before getting back to the grind before facing 2 more tough teams next weekend, the U. of San Diego, who beat the Buffs in Boulder last year and have beaten Stanford this year, and UC- Irvine, who has already swept USC this year.)
