NOTES: With three games remaining, the Buffs go into the penultimate weekend of the regular season at No. 54 in the RPI. But CU still has an opportunity to make a postseason push if it can get results during a tough trip through the Bay Area that also includes a Sunday date at No. 7 Stanford (1 p.m., Pac-12 Bay Area)…The Buffs are winless in their past nine contests against ranked foes (0-5-4). And although CU has picked up a pair of solid road draws this season (Brigham Young, Michigan), the Buffs remain winless in their past seven road games (0-3-4)…CU is 4-1-1 in its past six games against Cal and has posted victories in its past three visits to Berkeley…Civana Kuhlmann needs two points to become the fourth CU player to post 30 points in a season. That club includes Nikki Marshall (37 in 2006), Jorian Baucom (30 in 2018) and Taylor Kornieck (30 in 2019)…CU completes the regular season at home against Utah on Nov. 4.
