Time, the television network gears up for the Arizona Wildcats’ season opener Sept. 3 against San Diego State | National
The Sept. 3 game against Arizona at San Diego State will begin at 12:30 p.m. and air on CBS, the Aztecs announced Wednesday morning.
This will be the first-ever game played at the Aztecs’ new Snapdragon Stadium, which sits on the site of the former Qualcomm Stadium in San Diego’s Mission Valley. SDSU’s football program has been held for the past two seasons in Carson, over 100 miles away, while the new stadium is being built. The 35,000-seat Snapdragon Stadium is half the size of the former home of the Aztecs at Qualcomm.
Expect the Aztecs to be fired up for Game 1: September 3 marks SDSU’s first home game to air on a live network since November 24, 1979.
Expectations are higher this season for Arizona, which went 1-11 last season and winless in 2020. But a tough non-conference schedule could be a hurdle for the Wildcats and their best freshman class in the league. program history. After playing San Diego State, which went 12-2 a year ago, the Wildcats will host Mississippi State and South Dakota State before opening Pac-12 play with a game Sept. 24 at Cal.
SDSU traveled to Tucson last season and beat the Wildcats 38-14.
