BOULDER – The Colorado Women’s Volleyball team (13-10, 5-7) will head up to the Pacific Northwest again, this time to take on State (9-13, 4-8) and No. 7 Oregon (19-4, 9-3). Friday’s match in Corvallis will be at 8 p.m. MT, followed up with Sunday’s match in Eugene at 1 p.m. MT.
Colorado enters the week after splitting matches against USC and UCLA at home. They took down the Trojans in five sets Friday night, while the Bruins came away with the sweep Sunday afternoon.
Friday nights’ match was spearheaded by a trio of first years combining for 30 of the teams 57 kills. Lily Dwinell had a career-high 15 kills, Ana Burilović earned 10 and Cayla Payne tacked on five kills of her own.
Tabron was the only Buff to log double-digit kills against UCLA, with 13 kills for a .458 hit percentage and 11 digs.
Colorado currently sits at seventh in the Pac-12 standings, just behind both schools in Los Angeles. The Buffaloes have six games remaining on the road and two more at home in the CU Events Center.
The Beavers are coming off arguably their best weekend of the season, taking down both Washington and then-No.6 Washington State on the road, doubling their conference wins in a single weekend.
Colorado narrowly defeated Oregon State earlier in the month at home in five sets, and will now look to sweep the season series on Friday.
Just like their in-state rival, the Ducks handled both the Huskies and Cougars on the road, losing just one set on the weekend. They now sit at third place in the conference, only trailing Arizona State and Stanford.
Oregon swept the Buffs earlier in the month on the road and will look to continue their win streak over Colorado to eight matches. CU hasn’t beaten the Ducks since 2019, including four straight losses in Eugene.
