Arizona's Homecoming game will be a late one.

The Pac-12 announced this morning that the UA's Nov. 9 home game against UCLA will kickoff at 8 p.m. It will be televised by ESPN. 

It's a big difference from last year's Homecoming game, which started at 11:30 a.m., against Colorado.

The Wildcats have yet to have a day game at Arizona Stadium this season. Their games against NAU and Utah started at 7 p.m., and the UTSA matchup was a 7:30 p.m., start.

The Nov. 9 game will mark UCLA's first trip to Tucson since losing to the UA 48-12 in 2011 a week after the Wildcats fired coach Mike Stoops. The Bruins got revenge last season with a 66-10 win at the Rose Bowl. 

This year's game against the Bruins will mark Arizona's first ESPN game since beating Nevada in the New Mexico Bowl last season 49-48.

Before hosting UCLA, Arizona will travel to Cal this weekend for a 12:30 p.m., kick.
