Colorado Buffaloes at UCLA Bruins Game Thread

Today's riveting matchup between the mediocre-by-record UCLA Bruins and the mediocre-everywhere-but-the-record Colorado Buffaloes promises to be a exciting interesting important game.

The stakes are quite high...for Colorado. The Buffs will attempt to continue to outplay their metrics and stay in the hunt for an inaugural Pac-12 Championship with a second conference road victory at Chianti Dan Guerrero's Garbage Arena. Meanwhile, the Bruins will try to keep their heads above water in the conference standings. Sitting at 4-4 with the Ben Howland Bermuda Triangle Washington roadtrip on deck, UCLA needs to take advantage of this prime opportunity to pick up a win.

(Ancient) history will be on the Bruins' side today. From the official preview:

This is the sixth meeting between UCLA and Colorado with the Bruins leading the series 4-1. UCLA is 4-0 all-time in games contested in Los Angeles. The Bruins won the last meeting, 104-70 in Pauley Pavilion on Dec. 2, 1977.

UCLA comes into this game as 8 point favorites. Game will be shown on Prime Ticket.
