Arizona’s opener at Utah on Saturday has been moved up a half-hour and will air on a different network.

The Wildcats and Utes are now scheduled to kick off at 1:30 p.m. on ESPN2. They originally were supposed to start at 2 p.m. on ESPNU.

The Arizona Wildcats begin their season this weekend against Utah. Here are seven important stats about the state of the program.

The change was made after the Purdue-Wisconsin game was cancelled because of COVID-19 issues in the Badgers’ program. That game originally was slated for 1:30 on ABC.

ESPN also has changed the announcing crew. Dave Pasch, Mike Golic Sr. and Stormy Buonantony now will call the UA-Utah game.
