On Monday, the Pac-12 announced that CU's next home game, Oct. 28 against Cal at Folsom Field, will kick off at noon. The game will be broadcast on the Pac-12 Network.
That's a big day for CU, as it's homecoming, Ralphie's 50th anniversary celebration, a reunion for the 1967 Bluebonnet Bowl team, and Rashaan Salaam's jersey retirement ceremony.
Tate honored again
Arizona quarterback Khalil Tate was named the Pac-12 offensive player of the week on Monday. It's the second consecutive honor for the Wildcats' sophomore.
Cal linebacker Jordan Kunaszyk was named the defensive player of the week and Utah punter Mitch Wishnowsky was named the special teams player of the week.
A week after rushing for 327 yards against Colorado, Tate had 378 yards of total offense (230 rushing, 148 passing) and accounted for three touchdowns in a 47-30 win against UCLA.
Kunaszyk helped Cal to the upset of Washington State, with 11 tackles, 2.5 sacks, one forced fumble and one interception.
Wishnowsky averaged 46.8 yards on six punts in a 28-27 loss to USC. He played three punts inside the USC 15-yard line.
CU receiver Bryce Bobo and safety Evan Worthington were both nominated for player of the week honors.
Cornerback Trey Udoffia has not played the past two games after injuring his knee on Sept. 30 against UCLA, but CU coach Mike MacIntyre said the freshman is ready to go. "Trey can be in there in a drop of a hat," he said. "(Udoffia and Dante Wigley) have been rotating an even number of reps every practice." ... Kickoff specialist Davis Price didn't reach the end zone on his kickoffs like usual vs. OSU. MacIntyre said, "He definitely had an off game. We also played not at altitude, which sometimes that bothers him. I wish it wouldn't have bothered him as much as it did. Hopefully he'll kick better this week." ... MacIntyre said backup quarterback Sam Noyer "is getting better and better." He added that Noyer is learning the offense and getting a "ton of reps" in practice. ... The Buffs practiced in helmets and shorts on Monday and MacIntyre said. "I thought we got a lot accomplished." ... CU will wear all white this week at Washington State.
