After two consecutive losses, the Colorado Buffaloes went to work on Monday in preparation for Arizona, which will be at Folsom Field on Saturday.

This is the first regular season losing streak for the Buffs (3-2, 0-2 Pac-12) since 2015, but senior defensive lineman Leo Jackson III said the team isn't getting down.

"Luckily we have leaders on the team, like myself, some of the other captains and the seniors that have been through it, when we had two-win seasons and three-win seasons," he said. "That's the biggest thing. We're trying to keep the young guys' heads in it and let them know that losses happen; you have to bounce back from it."

Jackson believes that good team chemistry will help the Buffs bounce back.

"It's the brotherhood aspect," he said. "We know we're going to fight for each other."

Arizona (2-2, 0-1) had a bye last week.

Coming along

While the CU offensive line was not great against UCLA, MacIntyre thought the group made some progress.

"I thought overall they did OK," he said. "I didn't think they did great, but they did good enough for us to win. We had some opportunities for us to make some plays; you make a couple of those it's a different ball game."

MacIntyre credited UCLA "excellent" pass rushers and said the line didn't really have missed assignments.

"They just beat us a few times," he said.



The Pac-12 announced that CU's game at Oregon State on Oct. 14 will be slated for a 2 p.m. MT kickoff. The game will be broadcast on the Pac-12 Networks. Oregon State (1-4, 0-2 Pac-12) is coming off a 42-7 loss to Washington. The Beavers will play at USC this week. ... MacIntyre said redshirt freshman cornerback Trey Udoffia, who left Saturday's game with an apparent leg injury is "doing better." Udoffia was injured late in the first half and did not return. MacIntyre said he's not sure if Udoffia will play this week.
