Looking for their third straight win, the Arizona Wildcats will take on the California Golden Bears on Saturday in Berkeley, Calif at 5 p.m. PT.

The game will be televised on the Pac-12 Networks, and the Wildcats will be easy to spot.

Arizona unveiled its uniform combination for Saturday’s game, and it is going with red helmets and red pants along with the road white jersey.

The Wildcats are 1-2 all-time when wearing this uniform combination, according to, and the last time they wore it was the Pac-12 Championship Game in 2014.

That game didn’t go well. Oregon blasted Arizona, 51-14.

Hopefully things go better this time around.

Our Jason Bartel ranked this uniform set as one of Arizona’s worst:

Ok, this is when things turn ugly.

I know I said I liked the white jersey earlier, but not as the meat of a red bun burger.

The tomato can helmet should probably be phased out. It’s by far the worst of the helmets, and since the chrome one survived, I think we could all live with it going away forever. It’s almost as bad as the copper ones.....almost.

Just looking at this one makes me wince, and it shouldn’t, but it does.

I agree with Jason. Plus, the blue-white-blue combination that Arizona wore against the Colorado Buffaloes was beautiful and should be more than just a one-time deal.
