Wildcats kick off 2023 Pac-12 football schedule at Stanford
The Arizona Wildcats open their 2023 conference slate by visiting the Stanford Cardinal, according to the Pac-12 football schedule revealed on Wednesday.
Arizona hosts Northern Arizona on Sept. 2 to kick off the 2023 season, which is followed in nonconference play with a visit to Mississippi State (Sept. 9) and then a hosting of UTEP (Sept. 16).
The Wildcats have a favorable schedule in terms of getting tougher teams at home. Washington (Sept. 30), Oregon State (Oct. 28), UCLA (Nov. 4) and Utah (Nov. 18) all visit Tucson in 2023.
All four of those teams finished in the top-half of the Pac-12 in 2022. Arizona will also miss playing Oregon this season.
Head coach Jedd Fisch’s team gets 2022 one-win Colorado and three-win ASU on the road. That game in Tempe against the rival Sun Devils will wrap Arizona’s regular season on Nov. 25.
The toughest matchup of the conference slate is a visit to face the USC Trojans in Week 6.
The Wildcats will have a bye in Week 8.
Here’s a look at Arizona’s full 2023 schedule.
