Kickoff is at 7 p.m., and 50,000 fans will be heading to the stadium about the same time people on campus and those who work in Boulder will be trying to get home.

CU will also be using a new bag policy at the stadium on Thursday, including only clear bags or small clutch bags that have to be a certain size.

The Buffaloes, who were ranked No. 15 in the first College Football Playoff poll on Tuesday are 6-2 and lead the Pac-12 South Division at 4-1. UCLA is 3-5 overall and 1-4 in the conference.
