National writer predicts Arizona football will go winless in 2020

Photo by Christian Petersen/ Maybe Arizona Wildcats should be hoping there won’t be a 2020 college football season. Stewart Mandel, the editor-in-chief of The Athletic’s college football vertical, made record predictions for every Pac-12 team following Friday’s schedule reveal, and he has zero confidence in the Wildcats, projecting them to go winless for the season. That’s right. 0-10. “The best-case scenario for Kevin Sumlin’s third season is that it gets canceled altogether,” Mandel wrote. Harsh, but the new schedule does Arizona no favors. The Wildcats play two of their...

Arizona opponents Illinois and Gonzaga see key players withdraw from NBA Draft

Jacob Snow-USA TODAY Sports If the Arizona Wildcats are able to have a normal non-conference schedule amid the coronavirus pandemic, it just got a lot tougher.

Illinois point guard Ayo Dosunmu and center Kofi Cockburn, the lllini’s leading scorers, announced they will be returning for another season. Dosunmu’s decision was shocking since many mock drafts projected he would be a first-round pick. The 6-foot-5 rising junior averaged 16.6 points,...

Photo by Christian Petersen/ The Arizona Wildcats have a new conference-only football schedule that includes a home opener against the Arizona State Sun Devils—what a world!—but it remains to be seen how many, if any, fans will be allowed into Arizona Stadium to take it all in. That will be determined by the UA at a later date with advice from local, state and federal health officials. However, season ticket holders were notified by email Friday that although an official decision has not been made, the UA expects to have “reduced capacity” to begin the season.
