The Arizona Wildcats have been forced to change their schedule this weekend against Alcorn State.

The Braves were scheduled to fly into Tucson this afternoon in advance of tomorrow night's 6 p.m., series opener at Hi Corbett Field. Instead, the team had its flight cancelled and won't arrive in Arizona until tomorrow.

As a result, the two teams will open the series Saturday at 1 p.m., and play a doubleheader. The second game will start at 6 p.m.

The series finale is still set for Sunday at noon. 

Alcorn State is located in Lorman, Miss. It's unclear whether the flight cancellation is weather related or because of a maintenance issue. 

The UA is 3-2 on the season and is coming off a 5-2 10-inning loss to Utah Valley. Alcorn State opened its season at home last weekend against Bradley University.
