The Pac-12 announced its 2021 football schedule on Tuesday morning, meaning we now know the Arizona Wildcats’ entire slate and dates for Jedd Fisch’s first season.
They are as follows:
- Sept. 4: vs. BYU (in Las Vegas)
- Sept. 11: vs. San Diego State
- Sept. 18: vs. NAU
- Sept. 25: at Oregon
- Oct. 2: Bye week
- Oct. 9: vs. UCLA
- Oct. 16: at Colorado

- Oct. 30: at USC
- Nov. 6: vs. Cal
- Nov. 13: vs. Utah
- Nov. 19: at Washington State (Friday)
- Nov. 27: at ASU
Kickoff times and broadcast information will be announced at a later date. Due to the Pac-12’s imbalanced scheduling, Arizona does not face Oregon State or Stanford from the Pac-12 North this season.
The Wildcats open conference play at Oregon where Fisch was once an assistant coach.
Arizona alternates home and away on the road during in conference play all the way until Nov. 13 when it stays at home to face Utah a week after hosting Cal. Then the Wildcats cap the season with back-to-back road games at Washington State (on a Friday!) and ASU.
The Wildcats open the season against BYU in Las Vegas, where they will try to snap a 12-game losing streak dating all the way back to October 2019.
If they cannot beat the Cougars, they will have to snap the streak against SDSU or NAU.
