The Colorado volleyball team is running out of time to make a run at a second consecutive NCAA Tournament berth.

The Buffaloes, who reached the Sweet 16 last season for the first time in 20 years, play only three of their final nine regular-season games at home after falling to 4-7 in the Pac-12 Conference following Friday's four-set loss against No. 19 Washington State.

The Buffs get yet another chance at a ranked foe Sunday against No. 21 Washington. A look at the matchup:

No. 21 Washington at Colorado volleyball

Game time: Sunday, noon, CU Events Center.

Broadcast: Pac-12 Washington

Records: Washington 13-8, 5-6 Pac-12 Conference; CU 12-10, 4-7.

Notes: The Buffs fell into a tie for ninth in the Pac-12 following Friday's loss against Washington State ... CU is just 1-8 against raked foes this season ... A few good wins certainly could salvage the postseason picture for the Buffs, who began this past week at No. 65 in the RPI ... Following Sunday's match, the Buffs will play just two of their final eight regular season games at home ... The Buffs hit the road next weekend to face Cal (Wednesday, 8 p.m. MT, Pac-12 Networks) and No. 2-ranked Stanford (Friday, 8 p.m. MT, Pac-12 Networks).
