(Boulder, Colorado-AP) -- As Colorado prepares for Saturday's game against Oklahoma State, Buffalo head coach Gary Barnett says his team has an identity crisis.

Colorado is one-and-six, one-and-three in Big 12 Conference play, and guaranteed of its first losing season in 16 years.

Colorado has started three different quarterbacks this year, and lost running back Marcus Houston to injury in the third game.

Barnett says the Buffaloes offensive problems are not a big surprise because he has a new offensive coordinator and lost three linemen to graduation.

He says he hopes to use the last four games of the season as a building block for future success.
