- The first thing I noticed is Arizona gets an extra day off between the Utah and Colorado road games. That seems important since that is the only road trip in the conference that requires a flight between games. It’s also important because it gives the Wildcats more time to recover from the altitude.
- Arizona’s other Thursday-Sunday series comes at home against the Bay Area schools in the penultimate week of conference play.
- There are no conference home games that start after 7 p.m. local time, which is generally seen as a good thing, since 8 p.m. or even 9 p.m. starts (remember that GCU game?) are not viewed favorably.
- However, there is one late start on the road, and that’s a 9 p.m. MST game at Stanford.
- We don’t know the game time for the road game at Oregon yet. Three different times were given, so it likely depends on how marquee of a matchup that is when the time comes.
- It’s always worth repeating that Arizona does not host the L.A. schools this year, and it does not travel to Washington.
