Utah’s Season Opener Against Arizona Moved Up 30 Minutes, Switched To ESPN2
SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Utah football’s season opening clash with the Arizona Wildcats has been moved up 30 minutes and the television network has changed.
Originally scheduled to kickoff at 2 p.m. MT on ESPNU, the game has been moved to 1:30 p.m. MT and it will be televised on ESPN2.
Utah moved from ESPNU to ESPN2 because the Wisconsin/Purdue game that was originally scheduled for 1:30 p.m. MT on ABC was canceled due to a COVID-19 outbreak with Wisconsin. ESPN then bumped Houston/Cincinnati from ESPN2 to ABC.
