Buffs, Pac-12, Announce Men’s Basketball Schedule Changes
BOULDER – The University of Colorado and the Pac-12 Conference announced several changes to the Buffaloes' men's basketball schedule on Wednesday.
Thursday's game against Oregon has been moved from 9 p.m. up to 3 p.m. Mountain. The game will still air on FS1 as the first game of network's national triple header and will also broadcast on KOA 850 AM & 94.1 FM.
With the postponement of Saturday's Oregon State game, announced Tuesday, Colorado will now travel to play at Utah on Monday, Jan. 11, on the Pac-12 Network. Tip time has not been determined. The Buffaloes were originally scheduled to play in Salt Lake City on Saturday, Mar. 6, in their lone game during the final week of the regular season. That week will now free up the Buffaloes for any additional rescheduling needs.
Colorado's home game with California has been moved back one day from Wednesday, Jan. 13, to Thursday, Jan. 14 and will be played at 12 p.m. on the Pac-12 Network. The Buffaloes are still scheduled to host Stanford on Saturday, Jan. 16, as scheduled (1 p.m., Pac-12 Network).
Lastly, Colorado's home game with Washington State, postponed from Dec. 5, will be played on Wednesday, Jan. 27, at 7 p.m. on ESPNU. That was originally the week the Buffaloes were set host only Utah; that game still slated for Saturday, Jan. 30 at the CU Events Center at a time to be determined.
The schedule shuffling gives Colorado three of its next four games, and seven of its next 10, at the CU Events Center after beginning the season with eight of 10 away from home. The Buffaloes are slated to finish with four of six on the road pending a decision on the Oregon State game, which at this time is Colorado's lone outstanding scheduling need.
