Save the dates.

On Wednesday, the Arizona Wildcats’ 2017 football schedule (as well as some other notable dates for the program) was unveiled.

Here it is (the times and broadcast information will be announced at a later date):

Arizona’s non-conference schedule starts with two home games against NAU and the Houston Cougars, then finishes on the road in El Paso against the UTEP Miners.

The Wildcats then interestingly open Pac-12 play with a home game against the Utah Utes on a Friday night followed by their bye week.

Aside from Utah, Arizona is on tap to host the UCLA Bruins, Washington State Cougars, and Oregon State Beavers this season, while facing the Colorado Buffaloes, California Golden Bears, USC Trojans, Oregon Ducks, and Arizona State Sun Devils on the road.

Arizona will not face the Washington Huskies or Stanford Cardinal in 2017 which, given the perceived strength of their teams, is likely a good thing for Arizona’s win-loss record.

Arizona’s Family Weekend is set for Oct. 14 when the Wildcats host the UCLA Bruins, while Homecoming is on Oct. 28 when the Washington State Cougars come to Tucson.

Arizona’s Senior Day is on Nov. 11 against Oregon State.

As usual the Wildcats wrap up the regular season against Arizona State, though this time the game will take place on a Saturday.
