NOTES: This is the 2021 season finale for the Buffs and the final collegiate game for CU’s three departing seniors — Jenna Ewert, Zoe Neverdowski, and Taylor deProsse…The Buffs have lost five of its past six matches, including a four-set loss against No. 12 Washington in the home finale on Wednesday…CU’s Brynna DeLuzio, who leads the Pac-12 in digs, needs 11 digs to become just the second Buffs player to record 500 in a season…A win by the Utes would give Utah the No. 3 spot in the Pac-12. Win or lose, the Buffs are locked into the No. 10 spot this season in the Pac-12…Utah has won five of its past six games and is coming off a three-set victory on Wednesday against Washington State.
