One of those ex-Wildcats is former running back Ka’Deem Carey. The Tucson native is getting a special honor this week, too. He helped announce Saturday’s uniform combination, which will be red helmets, red jerseys, and red pants.
Arizona is 2-1 all-time when wearing all red (not including the chrome red helmets), according to WildcatUniverse.com.
Fans at Saturday’s game are encouraged to wear red — a “red out”, the kids call it.
The last time Arizona had a “red out”, things didn’t go so well. The Wildcats were blasted 56-30 by the UCLA Bruins after hosting ESPN’s College GameDay.
Scooby Wright III and Anu Solomon both left the game with injuries and Arizona’s season spiraled out of control from there.
Washington State will be wearing white helmets, white jerseys, and red pants Saturday, a very clean look for the Cougars.
Kickoff in Tucson is set for 6:30 p.m. MST and the game will be televised on the Pac-12 Networks.
