NOTES: This will be the final match in the careers of CU’s three seniors — Spann, Whipple, and Lillie Klemmer…Utah swept the Buffs at home on Sept. 25 and has defeated CU in four of the teams’ past five matches…CU had won three consecutive home matches before dropping a four-set decision against No. 4 Stanford on Sunday…The Buffs enter the finale with a 3-8 mark this season against ranked foes…CU’s win against Oregon on Wednesday assures the Buffs of finishing no lower than 10th in the Pac-12. An upset win by the Buffs combined with an Arizona home loss Saturday against Arizona State would leave CU in ninth place.
