Arizona, which defeated Toledo 41-2 on the road last weekend, opens its seven-game home schedule against the Bulldogs at 7 p.m. on Saturday. The school, in conjunction with IMG College, the school's media rights holder, has obtained a waver to televise the game and provide the game to a worldwide audience online.
Along with the webcast, fans not attending the game in person can see the game live on KWBA in Southern Arizona, nationally on Fox College Sports Pacific. The game can also be viewed on a delayed basis on KGUN in Southern Arizona at 10:35 pm and elsewhere on Fox Sports Arizona at 11:00 pm.
The game is the only live webcast UA will be able to offer for football games this season, but All-Access provides subscribers the opportunity to view the football and basketball coaches shows and is the exclusive home for UA football and basketball radio broadcasts. Most all home events for volleyball, women's soccer, women's gymnastics, softball and baseball are also available live to subscribers throughout the respective seasons.
The Wildcats, who were tabbed No. 23 on Tuesday in the ESPN/USA Today Coaches' Poll, are anticipating a large crowd for the home opener. As of noon on Wednesday, just over 4,700 tickets remained for the game.
Director of Athletics Greg Byrne encouraged fans who have purchased tickets to the game to pick up their tickets in advance of the game to avoid the game day rush in the hours leading up to kickoff. Fans can pick up tickets at the McKale Ticket Office through Friday during 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. business hours.
Arizona averaged 52,555 fans per game in Arizona Stadium a season ago. It marked the sixth consecutive season - all during the Mike Stoops era - that the Wildcats averaged over 50,000 fans per game, which set a new school record.
