The Colorado volleyball team has navigated its way through a demanding early slate in the Pac-12 Conference, and soon that schedule will take a more favorable turn. But not before a visit from the 14th-ranked Oregon Ducks, which will be the sixth ranked foe the Buffaloes have taken on in seven league games. Here is a look at the matchup:

No. 14 Oregon at Colorado volleyball

Game time: Friday, 7 p.m., CU Events Center.

Records: Oregon 11-5, 4-2 Pac-12 Conference; CU 10-7, 2-4.

Notes: The match will be the Buffs' Beat Breast Cancer Pink Game. Fans wearing pink can purchase $5 general admission tickets ... CU is just 5-12 all-time against the Ducks but swept the teams' two games last year, winning in four sets at home and five on the road ... After losing two matches at home against the Arizona schools, Oregon went on the road last week and posted sweeps at USC and UCLA, both of which are top-25 teams ... The Ducks began the week ranked fourth in the nation in assists per set (14.05) and fifth in kills per set (14.84) ... The Buffs complete a run of four consecutive home games on Sunday against Oregon State (2 p.m.).
