(Boulder, Colorado-AP) -- Colorado coach Gary Barnett is preparing his team for Oklahoma State's five-back defense.

The Buffaloes travel to Stillwater this weekend for a matchup with the Cowboys.

Barnett says OSU looks to take away the run and almost dares teams to throw on them.

Taking away CU's ground game may be tough for the Cowboys. Colorado has averaged 210 yards rushing per game.

Meanwhile, Colorado wide receiver Cedric Cormier is listed as day-to-day with a separated shoulder. Cornerback Roderick Sneed is expected to start Saturday despite a hamstring injury.
