Daytime football is such a rarity for Arizona fans, particularly at home, that it can take some getting used to whenever it happens.
But in back-to-back weeks? Now that’s just crazy talk.
Arizona’s Nov. 13 home finale against Utah has been tabbed for a 12 p.m. MT start, with the game being shown on the Pac-12 Network It will mark the second consecutive daytime start for the Wildcats, who host Cal at 12 p.m. MST this Saturday for Homecoming.
The Wildcats (0-8, 0-5 Pac-12) head into the final two home games of the 2021 season off arguably their best performance of the fall, losing 41-34 at USC. They put up a season-best 466 yards and more than doubled their season scoring average, with quarterback Will Plummer having his best effort so far.
Still, the UA still has that pesky 20-game losing streak to contend with, and against Cal (3-5, 2-3) it is once again a double-digit underdog.
Utah (5-3, 4-1) is currently in first place in the Pac-12’s South Division. The Utes have won four straight over the Wildcats.
Arizona now has start times and TV info for three of its final four games. The Nov. 19 game at Washington State, on a Friday night, is set for a 7 p.m. MT kickoff on Pac-12 Network, leaving only the Territorial Cup on Nov. 27 at ASU without TV and start info.
