After Saturday's win, the Buffs returned their focus to the Pac-12. They will host Arizona on Saturday in the first of six straight conference games to close the season.

Although CU has had a rough time in Pac-12 play this season, MacIntyre said he believes the Buffs can translate some of the good things they did Saturday to their Pac-12 games.

"I've seen it all along," MacIntyre said. "We just have to do it w hen we get out there and we have to get over that mental barrier. We're improving. We just have to do it against Arizona when they get here Saturday."

Arizona (4-2, 1-2 Pac-12) snapped a two-game losing streak on Saturday with a 35-24 win against Utah.
