Get ready for more #Pac12AfterDark.
The Arizona Wildcats’ game at USC on Saturday will kick off at 7:45 p.m. It will be televised nationally by ESPN.
The game marks Arizona’s ninth in a row this season starting at 5 p.m. or later.
When Arizona defeated No. 15 Washington State on Saturday night, and USC won at Arizona State, the 7:45 time slot became the most likely scenario. ESPN had the first pick in the “draft” for this particular six-day window.
The start time and TV assignment for Arizona’s final home game, against Oregon State on Nov. 11, could be announced as soon as Monday. It also could be subject to another six-day window, which would push the announcement to next Sunday.
Arizona has four regular-season games left. The Wildcats (6-2, 4-1) remain in the running to play in the Dec. 1 Pac-12 Championship Game. They also are bowl-eligible after going 3-9 last season.
