At least Arizona fans are used to this, whether they like it or not.
The Wildcats’ 2019 Pac-12 Conference opener against the UCLA Bruins on Saturday, Sept. 28 has been set for a 7:30 p.m. PT kickoff, the league officially announced Monday. The game will be broadcast on ESPN.

This will mark the fourth consecutive night kickoff to start this season and 11th time in the last 12 games Arizona’s game will begin at 7 p.m. Tucson time or later. The only exception was last year’s Territorial Cup in Tucson, which kicked off at 1:30 p.m.
Night kickoffs in Tucson are almost a guarantee in September and much of October, meaning Arizona’s only potential daytime home games are Nov. 2 vs. Oregon State (which is Homecoming) and Nov. 23 vs. Utah.
The Wildcats’ first Pac-12 road game, Oct. 5 at Colorado, has a good chance for a daylight start.
