BOULDER – The 1-0 Colorado Buffaloes are on their way to Palo Alto to take on the Stanford Cardinal. The game will be broadcast on ESPN at 1:30 p.m. MT.

Following an offensive explosion in Week 1 that was largely the result of spectacular starting debuts from quarterback Sam Noyer and running back Jarek Broussard, the Buffaloes will face a tougher task in Week 2.

Stanford's front seven may not be what it once was, but it still has the potential to be one of the better units in the Pac-12. The explosiveness is lacking but the Cardinal defensive line is stout and strong, which could challenge Colorado.

The Buffs beat Stanford 16-13 in Boulder last year and this year's contest could resemble that game more than the high-scoring affair Colorado found itself in versus UCLA on Saturday.

Here are three matchups to keep an eye on when Colorado and Stanford take the field:

BOULDER – Week 1 is in the books and Colorado is still undefeated following a 46-42 home win over UCLA.

"We obviously got a very good win. It's a good start for us," Dorrell said during his weekly press conference Monday. "For the first game, we definitely have a lot of issues to correct in oall phases; special tems, defensively, offensively. We're looking forward to another opportunity this weekend."

Colorado scored its second touchdown of the game halfway through the first quarter and UCLA never got possession of the ball in a one-score game the rest of the way. Despite the Buffs' dominance, though, the Bruins built some momentum in the second half, thanks to a combination of mistakes on Colorado's part and some great plays from the visitors.

Colorado missed three field goals and blew some coverages, which led to a three-touchdown run for UCLA in the middle of the game. Dorrell said that one of the talking points prior to the game was trying to match the big plays that UCLA quarterback Dorian Thompson-Robinson would likely create during the game becuase of "his elusiveness in the pocket and how dangerous he can be in open field."

"We've got to make a few more plays than he does to win the game and that's what we were able to do," Dorrell said.

BOULDER – Here’s a question for you, Buffs fan: If you had the option at Colorado to take five bowl appearances in the next five years, would you do it? Of course you would. But for some reason, way back in 2007, UCLA said that wasn’t good enough and that Karl Dorrell should be fired, despite never missing the postseason.…...

BOULDER – The Buffs are officially back! Following an 11-month absence, the Colorado Buffaloes took to the football field to take on the UCLA Bruins. The Buffs knocked off the Bruins 48-42.

BOULDER – The Colorado backfield isn't as congested as it was a week ago, but that isn't necessarily a good thing.

CU announced Monday that starting runnning back Alex Fontenot – the Pac-12's second-leading returning rusher – will miss the first game of the season with an undisclosed injury. Fontenot sustained the injury late last week and head coach Karl Dorrell said he hoped to get Fontenot back this season, though he didn't have a timeline for reporters.

With Fontenot out, sophomore Jarek Broussard is listed as the Buffs' starter. Broussard, a 5-foot-9 jitterbug, has never taken a snap for Colorado, primarily due to a pair of torn ACLs. He was the favorite to be the Buffs' receiving back last season prior to the second injury, in camp.
