TUCSON, Ariz. – On Wednesday, the Pac-12 Conference released the dates, start times and television designations for the upcoming 2021-22 men's basketball regular season. Every game on the Arizona schedule will be televised by either one of the ESPN family of networks, CBS, FOX or FS1.
The Wildcats game at home against Arizona State on Saturday, Jan. 29 is one of just three Pac-12 regular season games on CBS while the home contest against USC on Saturday, Feb. 5 is one of two Pac-12 regular season games slated for a national broadcast on FOX.
Additionally, Arizona will play on the ESPN family of networks – ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNU – a total of 11 times and on FS1 on four occasions.
To mark the 10-year anniversary of the Pac-12 Networks coverage of men's basketball, all 12 conference teams will play their season opener on Nov. 9 as part of a 10-hour tip-off marathon on the Pac-12 Networks. Included in that marathon will be Arizona's season opener in the McKale Center against Northern Arizona, as it's the first of 13 contests on Pac-12 Networks this season.
The start time and tv designation for two non-conference road games have yet to be announced – Dec. 11 at Illinois and Dec. 22 at Tennessee – as well the Wildcats exhibition game on Nov. 1 against Eastern New Mexico.
