Scouting report: With a veteran-laden team and a lockdown defense, Colorado is one of the biggest surprises of a Pac-12 season full of them.

The Buffaloes (4-9, 1-8 Pac-12) haven’t won two games in the Pac-12 since their first year in the league and have never finished better than in a tie for fifth place.
