The countdown to the 2013 football season is officially on. And yes, we're talking about practice.

The Arizona Wildcats released their schedule for fall practice this morning. Players will report on Aug. 3 and will practice that night at 6:15.

Some of the highlights of the fall schedule include: a three-day stint at Fort Huachuca from Aug. 8 to Aug. 10, Media Day on Aug. 18 and a total of five two-a-days.

In all, the UA will practice 24 times leading up to Aug. 26. At that point, the Wildcats will shift into game preparation mode for their Aug. 30 opener against NAU.

Coach Rich Rodriguez's squad will also scrimmage three times, including once at Fort Huachuca. All practices are closed to the public.
