Arizona football is off this week, but when it returns to action it will once again be against a ranked opponent. But this time it will be at home, and at a familiar start time.
The Wildcats’ Oct. 28 game against No. 12 Oregon State is slated for a 7:30 p.m. MST kickoff, with ESPN airing the contest.
Arizona (4-3, 2-2 Pac-12) hasn’t played the Beavers (6-1, 3-1) since 2019, when it lost 56-38 at home in 2019. The Wildcats’ last win in the series was in 2018, in Corvallis, and overall they’re 24-16-1 against OSU with a 13-7 mark at Arizona Stadium.
The UA is 2-1 at home this season, its lone loss by seven to No. 5 Washington on Sept. 30. Before getting this week off the Wildcats blew out then-No. 19 Washington State 44-6 in Pullman, their biggest Pac-12 road win in 40 years and largest margin of victory ever against a ranked opponent.
This is only Arizona’s third game on an ESPN network this season, the first at home. The UA lost 31-24 in overtime at Mississippi State in September and 43-41 in triple overtime at then-No. 9 USC two weeks ago.
