3 — CU players that have had long reception streaks end in the past two weeks. Devin Ross had caught a pass in 20 straight games before getting shut out the last two weeks. Last week against Oregon State, Phillip Lindsay had a streak of 23 consecutive games with a catch end, and Jay MacIntyre's streak ended at 11 in a row.

5 — Number of times CU has defeated a Mike Leach-coached team, in eight tries. Leach was 1-3 against the Buffs during his tenure at Texas Tech, and 2-2 while at Washington State.

13 — Consecutive quarters played by the Buffs without committing a turnover. For the first time in school history, the Buffs have played three consecutive games without a turnover.

18 ½ — Career sacks for Washington State junior Hercules Mata'afa. He has 36 ½ career tackles for loss. This year, he had 6.5 sacks and 12 TFLs — ranking first in the Pac-12 in both categories.

40 — Career victories for CU head coach Mike MacIntyre. He needs just three more to match the career total for his late father, George, who went 43-66-1.

359 — Combined career catches for Washington State's running back trio of Jamal Morrow (169 catches), Gerard Wicks (96) and James Williams (94). Morrow has 14 career touchdown catches.

665 — Rushing yards by Rashaan Salaam during a three-game span during the 1994 season. That's currently the CU record for rushing yards in a three-game stretch. Phillip Lindsay has 466 in the last two games, and would need 200 yards on Saturday to break Salaam's mark.


699 — All-time wins for CU. The Buffs are 699-497-36 in their history. CU is looking to become the 25th FBS program to reach 700 wins.
