Afternoon kickoff set for Arizona Wildcats' upcoming game at Colorado

Arizona Colorado Football

Arizona quarterback Khalil Tate bolts away from the Colorado defense for a touchdown in the second half of Arizona’s 2017 win over the Buffaloes. Tate rushed for 327 yards — the most by a quarterback in FBS history — and completed 12 of 13 passes for 154 yards.

The Arizona Wildcats have a rare afternoon kickoff on their upcoming schedule.

The UA-Colorado game in Boulder on Oct. 5 will begin at 1:30 p.m. Tucson time (2:30 local time). The game will air on Pac-12 Networks.

The afternoon kickoff is the Wildcats’ first of the season. The Aug. 24 opener at Hawaii began a little after 4:30 p.m. in Honolulu, which is 7:30 in Tucson.

Arizona had three day games last season, equaling the combined total from the previous two campaigns.

The Colorado game marks UA quarterback Khalil Tate’s first appearance in Boulder since his record-setting, breakout performance in 2017.

This Saturday’s home game vs. UCLA will kick off a little after 7:30 p.m. on ESPN.

The start time and TV assignment for Arizona’s Oct. 12 home game against Washington could be announced as soon as next Monday.
