The Cougars had won their previous four games…WSU is in a crowded pack in the middle of the Pac-12 standings as one of four teams tied for fourth….CU leads the all-time series against WSU 10-6, but the Cougars have won four of the past five meetings…The Buffs host No. 9 Washington on Sunday at 1 p.m. It will be CU’s fourth consecutive match against a ranked foe.
