It’s time to start planning ahead.

Just more than a week after the UA capped off its 2013 season with a 42-19 win over Boston College in the AdvoCare V100 Bowl, the Wildcats now know what their 2014 slate will look like. The full schedule is at the bottom of this page.

The Pac-12 Conference released its 2014 schedule this afternoon, and the Wildcats will open league play on Sept. 20 with a home game against Cal.

The team’s first bye week of the season will follow the next weekend and then the UA will head to Oregon for a Thursday night primetime game on Oct. 2. Like this year’s game at USC, the game will likely be televised by Fox Sports 1, but television plans have yet to be formally announced.

After facing the Ducks in primetime, the UA will return to Arizona Stadium for its only home game in a 48-day stretch and host USC on Oct. 11.

The Wildcats will then enjoy their second and final bye week of the season before back-to-back road games at Washington State and UCLA.

The game against the Cougars will be the UA’s first in Pullman, Wash., since a 24-7 win in 2010.

Following the UA’s appearance at the Rose Bowl on Nov. 1, Arizona will play three of its final four games of the season at Arizona Stadium and its first since the game against the Trojans.

The stretch begins with back-to-back home games against Colorado and Washington.

Following the team’s final road game of the season at Utah, the UA will host the Territorial Cup against ASU the day after Thanksgiving on Nov. 28.

The Territorial Cup will move back to Friday after a Saturday game in Tempe last season. The two rivals last faced off on a Friday in 2012 when the Sun Devils staged a fourth quarter comeback and won 41-34.

The UA’s nonconference games — Aug. 30 versus UNLV, Sept. 6 at UTSA and Sept. 13 versus Nevada — had already been announced.
