PASADENA, Calif. (AP) - After consecutive losses to the West Coast's two best teams, No. 17 UCLA is hurting.
A visit from Colorado is usually a good way for Pac-12 teams to get better.
The Bruins (5-2, 2-2 Pac-12) won't assume they're in for an easy evening when they begin their home-heavy schedule Saturday with a visit from the Buffaloes (3-4, 0-4), who have lost 12 straight conference games.
UCLA's homecoming game is a chance to regain confidence after flopping in the second half at Stanford and Oregon. The Bruins must make a run in the South Division to earn a third trip to the conference championship game next month.
Colorado is hoping for its breakthrough win under new coach Mike MacIntyre - and its first road win over a ranked team since 2002.
