Sonoran Hot Reads: It's Game Day!

Let's get this party started!

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

It's officially game day in Tucson! The Arizona Wildcats kick the season off at 7 PM PT, so there's plenty of time to check out other college football games throughout the day.

- Phil Steele gave his betting thoughts on the Wildcats for ESPN Insider, and he is not a big fan, citing last year's 5-9 record against the spread

- Apparently Arizona isn't worth mentioning in ESPN's ten bold predictions for the Pac-12 either

- We already know Arizona's depth chart, but here's where you can find the rest of the Pac-12 depth charts

- Daniel Berk polled some of us at practice the other day for the most irreplaceable players, and my top three are his top three

- Brad Malone at ZonaZealots gives his thoughts on the season outlook

- And if you want even more previews, here's one by something called iSportsWeb

- Our football pick 'em group doesn't start until Friday, so you still have time to sign up and get your picks in!

Basketball

Tickets for the Red/Blue game go on sale Saturday morning

Other sports

- Soccer goes to Tempe this weekend to play San Diego State and Stephen F. Austin

- Volleyball opens their home schedule with three matches over the course of Friday and Saturday

- Some crazy lady barricaded herself inside her car on I-10, shutting the highway down west of Benson
