Coming off their big win over Oregon last time out, the Washington Huskies are looking for their first win away from Seattle this year, and hopefully will find it against the Colorado Buffaloes on Thursday.
This will be the Huskies first Pac-12 trip to Colorado, and the 14th meeting with them all-time, with the Huskies owning a 7-6 advantage in the series. These two haven't faced each other since 1996 though, making a a nice start to a new inter-conference rivalry.
Colorado currently leads the conference in defensive field goal percentage, holding their opponents to an impressive 39% shooting from the floor on average this season. If Washington wants to get going on the road, they'll have to make sure that they get some good looks and easy buckets early in the game.
