Jedd Fisch finally got his day game, but not the national audience you’d hope to get for a game featuring ranked teams in November.

Arizona’s home finale against Utah has been set for a 12:30 p.m. MT kickoff, with the Pac-12 Network airing the game. It will mark the seventh time this season the Wildcats will play on the conference’s own channel.

Utah (7-3, 4-3 Pac-12) is coming off a 35-28 loss at Washington on Saturday, one that knocked it out of the conference title game race. Arizona (7-3, 5-2) is still in the hunt thanks to its 34-31 walkoff win at Colorado.

This is latest into a season Arizona has had its first home game start earlier than 5 p.m. since 2018 when the Territorial Cup was an afternoon kickoff. The Wildcats have had at least one afternoon home kickoff every year but one (2017) since 2010.
