Colorado (3-4, 0-4 Pac-12) at No. 17 UCLA (5-2, 2-2) 7:30 p.m. (Fox Sports 1)
Line: UCLA by 27.
Series record: UCLA leads 6-2.
WHAT'S AT STAKE
The Bruins must bounce back after failing against the Pac-12's best, losing consecutive road games to Stanford and Oregon. They'll return to the Rose Bowl to host the rebuilding Buffaloes, who have lost 12 straight conference games.
Colorado LT Jack Harris vs. UCLA DE Cassius Marsh. Harris has been the Buffaloes' best offensive lineman for most of the season, while the pass-rushing Marsh will be looking to bounce back after making little impact in the Bruins' last two losses.
PLAYERS TO WATCH
Colorado: WR Paul Richardson. With 50 catches for 914 yards and seven touchdowns, the Los Angeles native is well on his way to a slew of single-season Buffaloes records. He'll face a solid UCLA pass defense.
UCLA: QB Brett Hundley. It's time to see how the sophomore star responds to two mediocre performances on the biggest stages. He passed for just 256 yards and threw four interceptions in the last two games, failing to lead UCLA to a breakthrough win.
