NOTES: After going winless in their first 10 Pac-12 matches, which counted as the third-longest losing streak in program history, the Buffs put together a sweep of the Arizona schools at home last week…CU will be challenged to keep the momentum rolling, as the UCLA match marks the first of four consecutive road matches for the Buffs. Three of those matches are against ranked foes (UCLA, and next week at No. 14 Washington and No. 24 Washington State)…The Bruins swept CU in Boulder on Oct. 13 and leads the all-time series 15-4…The Buffs play Sunday night at USC. The Trojans were ranked last week before dropping out of this week’s poll.
