BOULDER – The 2023-24 University of Colorado men’s basketball schedule is complete, with the Buffaloes once again featured prominently on a national stage.

The Pac-12 Conference has released the dates for its full 120-game schedule along with tip times and television designations for the majority of the league-controlled contests.

Colorado has 27 regular season games scheduled to air on one of the Pac-12’s television partners. The Buffaloes will appear on the ESPN Family of Networks for half of their Pac-12 schedule (10 games). Colorado will have 14 games overall on the Pac-12 Network with three on FS1.

Last month, the Pac-12 announced the conference weekly pairings, but Thursday’s announcement set the full schedule. The Buffaloes open Pac-12 play against Washington on Friday, Dec. 29, with a 7 p.m. tip on ESPNU at the CU Events Center. Colorado then hosts Washington State on Sunday, Dec. 31, at 12 p.m. on the Pac-12 Network.

The Buffaloes have two different sets of three-game road trips as well as two separate three-game home stands during the league schedule. Colorado rings in the New Year with three of those instances, which adds up to a stretch of six of nine on the road.

After a trip to the desert to play Arizona (Jan. 4, 7:30 p.m., ESPN) and Arizona State (Jan. 6, 6 or 8 p.m., ESPN2/U), Colorado heads to the Bay Area for a single game with California (Jan. 10, 9 p.m. MT, ESPNU). The Buffaloes return home for a weekend contest with USC (Jan. 13, 8 p.m., ESPN2) and will then host Oregon (Jan. 18, 8:30 p.m., FS1) and Oregon State (Jan. 20, 5 p.m., Pac-12) the following week.

Colorado embarks on its second three-game road swing with its final Pac-12 trip to Washington (Jan. 24, 9 p.m. MT, ESPNU) and Washington State (Jan. 27, 3 p.m. MT, Pac-12) before heading to Salt Lake City to face Utah (Feb. 3, 3 p.m., Pac-12).

Colorado hosts Arizona State (Feb. 8, 6 p.m., FS1) and Arizona (Feb. 10, 6 or 8 p.m., ESPN/2/U) before making a farewell tour of Los Angles at UCLA (Feb. 15, 7 p.m., ESPN2) and USC (Feb. 17, 8 p.m. ESPN2).

The Buffaloes head down the home stretch by hosting Utah (Feb. 24, 7 p.m., Pac-12), California (Feb. 28, 6 p.m., Pac-12) and its lone game with Stanford on Senior Night (Mar. 3, 7 p.m., FS1) before closing the regular season at Oregon (Mar. 7, 7 or 7:30 p.m., ESPN/2) and Oregon State (Mar. 9, 3 p.m., Pac-12).

The times and ESPN designation for Colorado’s games at Arizona State and home against Arizona will be determined two weeks out while the game at Oregon will be decided one week ahead of the contest.

During the nonconference schedule Colorado will have two games, and possibly a third, air on CBS Sports Network, including the hardwood edition of the Rocky Mountain Showdown against Colorado State on Nov. 29 at 7 p.m. in Fort Collins. A television partner for the NABC Brooklyn Showcase game against Miami on Dec. 10 is still to be determined.

All seven of Colorado’s home nonconference games will air on Pac-12 Networks, tipping off with Towson on Nov. 6 at 5:30 p.m.

In addition to the regular season schedule, the Buffaloes added an exhibition game against MSU Denver for Oct. 28, at 7 p.m. at the CU Events Center.
