DENVER (CBS4) – After back to back heartbreaking home losses to UCLA and USC, the Colorado Buffaloes rebounded on the road with a big win at Oregon.

Jabari Walker led the Buffs with 24 points and 11 rebounds as Colorado ended Oregon’s 6-game winning streak with a 82-78 victory.

It was Colorado’s first “Quad 1” win of the season which improves their resume for the postseason.

Colorado fell behind 15-0 to begin the game but closed the gap to 42-37 at half before outscoring the Ducks by 9 in the 2nd half.

It was Colorado’s first win at Oregon since the 2013 season and ended a streak of 13 consecutive victories by the home team in the series.

Next up for the Buffs is a game at Washington on Thursday night.
