The Matchup
Like Oklahoma, Colorado will also be looking for their first Big 12 win tonight. The Buffaloes lost to Texas, 102-78, last Saturday in Boulder in their conference opener.

Colorado comes into the game 4-7 and losers of three of their last four games, but they are led by one of the Big 12's best players in 6-foot-6 guard Richard Roby, who was an All-Big 12 first-team selection last season.

Colorado beat the Sooners 84-75 last year in Boulder, and it was Roby who led the way with 28 points. OU's Michael Neal finished with 26 points, including seven 3-pointers.

Oklahoma leads the all-time series 84-47 and have won 21 straight games against the Buffs in Norman (44-12 overall). The last time Colorado won in Norman was 1980.
