The Bearcats, huh? pic.twitter.com/z5k5hxqhE5— Dominic Baciocco (@DominicBaciocco) September 16, 2018
Saturday’s game was aired on Pac-12 Arizona. During the first half, the network’s Twitter account mistakenly identified the Wildcats as the Bearcats.
“Bear down” is Arizona’s trademark phrase, but as far as we know, the mascot is still Wilbur T. Wildcat. The Pac-12 isn’t the first to make the Bearcats mistake; ESPN analyst George Whitfield Jr. did something similar a few years ago.
