The Colorado volleyball team posted a crucial victory early in the week against No. 21 Washington, and backed it up with a rare road sweep Wednesday night at Cal. While the Buffaloes attempt to take advantage of a momentary turn in the schedule, the one exception to that run is a date against one of the top programs in the nation tonight.
A look at the Buffs' match at Stanford:
