With a three-game win streak and a one-loss opponent, there was at least a small chance Arizona’s next home game could be started before the sun went down.
No such luck. In fact, it will begin later than any other game this season.
Arizona’s Oct. 12 home game—for Family Weekend—against Washington has been tabbed for an 8 p.m. PT start, with Fox Sports 1 taking the broadcast.
The late kickoff time is due to FS1 and other Fox networks having Major League Baseball playoff coverage, which means it’s possible the game could start even later (or begin airing on a different channel) if the baseball game on FS1 before it runs long.
Arizona (3-1, 1-0 Pac-12) hasn’t played Washington (4-1, 1-1) since 2016, when it lost 35-28 in overtime at home. The Huskies have won five of the last eight meetings, with the Wildcats’ last victory coming in 2014 when they came out on top 27-26 after Washington missed a field goal as time expired.
