The kickoff time and TV assignment have been announced for the Arizona Wildcats’ Sept. 28 home game against UCLA.

The Cats and Bruins will kick off at 7:30 p.m. The game will be televised by ESPN.

The Pac-12 opener will mark Arizona’s fourth straight game starting at 7:30 or later Tucson time. That’s par for the course for September home games in Arizona.

The start times for the remainder of the UA’s schedule have yet to be announced. The details of the Oct. 5 game at Colorado could be released as early as next Monday.

Arizona (2-1) has a bye this week after concluding its non-conference schedule with a 28-14 victory over Texas Tech. UCLA (0-3) remained winless after losing at home to No. 5 Oklahoma. The Bruins visit No. 19 Washington State this Saturday. That’s also a 7:30 kickoff on ESPN.
