Arizona and Washington State will get an early start when they kick off Nov. 16.
The Wildcats' home game against the Cougars will kick off at noon on the Pac-12 Networks, the schools announced today.
It's the earliest kickoff for the UA this season, and the first noontime start since the Wildcats played in the New Mexico Bowl in December. They won that game 49-48.
The matchup with the Cougars — Arizona's first in two years because of Pac-12 scheduling — is also the earliest at Arizona Stadium since last year's Homecoming matchup against Colorado started at 11:30. The Wildcats won that one, too, 56-31, when Ka'Deem Carey rushed for a Pac-12 record 366 rushing yards.
