When Washington State plays at Colorado on Saturday, it will be battle of Pac-12 division leaders.Nobody saw that coming.The 12th-ranked Buffaloes (8-2, 6-1 Pac-12) are the most surprising team in the country, considering they were picked to finish last in the Pac-12 South in a vote of league media and had only five conference victories in their first five seasons in the league.Washington State (8-2, 7-0) opened the season with a home loss to lower-division Eastern Washington and a defeat at Boise State. The Cougars have since ripped off eight consecutive victories -- their longest streak since 1930 and the second-longest streak in the nation behind Alabama (22).Two years ago, Colorado and Washington State finished last in their respective divisions. Now, this game -- kicking off at 3:30 p.m. ET from Boulder, Colo. (Fox TV) -- is the biggest in the Pac-12.Isnt that great, said Colorado coach Mike MacIntyre.It is exciting for both teams. It is exciting for Washington State and Mike Leach and it is exciting for the University of Colorado and our staff. I am so excited for our fans. This is a special time in Colorado football.Colorado is one game up in the loss column on USC and Utah, the only other teams that can win the South.The Buffaloes likely have to win their final two games against ranked opponents to take the title and advance to the conference championship game. The Buffs finish the regular season at home against No. 11 Utah.Washington States division-tile hopes will likely come down to next weeks Apple Cup game against seventh-ranked Washington, which is one game back of the Cougars. WSU will have to navigate its tough final two regular-season games without senior wide receiver River Cracraft.His college career is over after he tore his left ACL in last weeks 56-21 win over California. He and fellow senior Gabe Marks are the only duo in Pac-12 history to each have 200 career catches at the same time.Hes a great player, coach Mike Leach said of Cracraft. He contributed early in his career, which I thought was impressive.Washington State junior quarterback Luke Falk is second nationally with 361.0 passing yards per game, directing Leachs Air Raid attack. Falk last week set a school record with his 23rd career 300-yard game.Marks set the Pac-12 career receptions record last week; he has 295.Colorado counters with the best pass defense in the Pac-12, allowing 176.9 yards per game through the air. Opponents are completing just 50.9 percent of their passes, the best mark in the conference.But this WSU team also has balance, able to run the ball when the opportunity presents itself. Behind Gerard Wicks (career-high 128 yards) and James Williams (80 yards), the Cougars ran for 254 yards on 31 carries last week against Cal, their highest total in Leachs five seasons as head coach.It helps a lot, Marks said of the run game.I dont like to admit it sometimes, because the run game affects my life. But it has affected my life in a good way now. Back in the day, wed just run it and nothing would get done, and it was like dont run it. Just throw me the ball. ...Balance is good. Weve got some good balance right now.Colorado is solid and balanced, too.Senior Sefo Liufau, who set a school record last week with his 36th career start at quarterback, rarely makes a killer mistake. He recently had a streak of 152 passes without an interception.The Buffs can run the ball (204.7 yards per game) behind tailback Phillip Lindsay. They can stop the run (131.5 yards per game).They have forced a turnover in a national-best 23 consecutive games and are tied for 18th in turnover margin at 0.7 per game.Bottom line: They Buffs dont beat themselves. Their only losses this season came at Michigan (they were leading when Liufau left with an injury) and at USC.And, so, Saturday will mark the biggest home game of Colorados tenure in the Pac-12.Giving people something to believe in has always been a part of this season, wide receiver Shay Fields said on the teams website. Folsom the last couple of years hasnt been that packed. But since we won those first three, the fans have been outstanding. Theyve gotten the feeling that CU is back and thats exciting.

DENVER -- For one night, the conversation wasnt all about rookie sensation Yasiel Puig. Granted, the Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder did have another stellar game, which is pretty much the standard these days. But Clayton Kershaw accomplished what few have been able to do lately -- he stole some of Puigs spotlight. Kershaw tossed a four-hitter for his second shutout of the season as the Dodgers beat the Colorado Rockies 8-0 on Tuesday. "He had everything working," manager Don Mattingly said of his ace. Kershaw (7-5) kept the Rockies off balance all night, even top hitter Michael Cuddyer, who had his franchise-record 27-game hitting streak halted after going hitless in four plate appearances. Cuddyer flied out to Puig in right to end the game. "If it was going to end, might as well end against the best pitcher in the league," Cuddyer said. "He pitched really well. He was tough tonight." So tough that he allowed just one runner to get to second all evening. The hard-throwing Kershaw had eight strikeouts and walked none. "I had pretty good fastball command tonight," he nonchalantly said. Asked about the offence and his face lit up as he pedaled on the exercise bike after the game. "Its awesome," Kershaw said. "Its a tough lineup right now to get through. Puigs on another planet. You keep thinking he cant keep this up, not just singles, hes been hitting the ball really hard everywhere. Ive been really, really impressed." Its hard not to be. The 22-year-old Puig had three more hits, including a solo homer, to raise his average to .443 this season. "Whatever league that Im in Im going to do the best I can," he said through a translator. "Im going to play wherever they ask me to play." Roy Oswalt (0-3) was roughed up in his first start at Coors Field this season. He allowed five runs and nine hits in five innings. Part of that, he explained, had to do with simply being too fine. "Trying to throw that nine-inning shutout with 70 pitches, instead of being aggressive like Ive always been," Oswalt said. Adrian Gonzalez broke open the game with a two-run homer in the third and Juan Uribe added a pair of RBI singles. Hanley Ramirez extended his hitting streak to 13 games with a single in the second. Kershaw found himself in a rather unfamiliar position -- with a big early lead. He entered the game with the second-lowest run support of any NL starter. But the Dodgers gave Kershaw an early four-run cushion, more than enough for him. It was Kershaws third compllete game of the season and second shutout.dddddddddddd. He held the San Francisco Giants without a run in his first start of the season on April 1. Kershaw might have had the play of the game against the Rockies -- or at least the most comical -- when he lost his glove trying to field a bunt. No matter, he picked it up barehanded and threw out Josh Rutledge. "He had his A game, no question," Rockies manager Walt Weiss said. "It was going to be tough to score off of him. He was at the top of his game and when he is, you have to scratch and claw for everything." The fans showed up early to watch Puig send one monster shot after another into the stands during batting practice. Puig was even more impressive once the game began. These days, its hard not to take notice of Puig. His 44 hits in June were a Dodgers rookie record for a month. He carried it over into July with a single in the first and a double off the right-field scoreboard in the third. After taking a called third strike, Puig sent a pitch from reliever Adam Ottavino over the fence in the deepest part of the park for his eighth homer this season. Puig wasnt done there. He also made a running catch in foul territory, veering right for the seats before suddenly turning to avoid a collision. He then trotted into the dugout as if it were just another routine play. "Exciting player. Big guy with a lot of athleticism," Weiss said before the game. "Brought a lot of excitement to that club." The same can be said of Cuddyer, who failed to get a hit for the first time since May 27. His streak was the longest in the majors this season. Cuddyer didnt reach base, either, bringing his streak of 46 straight games with a hit, walk or being plunked by a pitch to an end. "Im proud of (the streak)," Cuddyer said. "Its a long time, longer than Ive ever gone." His first order of business now that its over? "Definitely going to get a haircut," said Cuddyer, who also grew a scruffy beard. Cuddyer couldnt even begin to fathom hitting in 56 straight like Joe DiMaggio. "Thats ridiculous," he said. "Its one of those records, for me, thats unattainable. "You just enjoy the ride as long as you can." NOTES: The Dodgers acquired former All-Star reliever Carlos Marmol from the Chicago Cubs for RHP Matt Guerrier. ... Colorado placed OF Dexter Fowler (bruised right hand) on the 15-day disabled list. The move is retroactive to June 26. ... Backup catcher Yorvit Torrealba had two hits off Kershaw.
