Boise State softball comes to Tucson for three-game series
Arizona softball hosts Boise State for a three-game series over three days, but the weather has forced an off-day on Friday.
The No. 20 Wildcats (15-5) host the Broncos (9-10) tonight at 6 p.m. at Hillenbrand Stadium, a game originally scheduled for Friday night, but moved up a day due to the threat of rain. On Saturday Arizona and BSU play a doubleheader starting at 5 p.m.
Tonight’s game is Breast Cancer Awareness Night and fans are encouraged to wear pink.
On Saturday, the first 1,500 fans will receive a schedule magnet.
Tyler Baker / Arizona Daily Wildcat UA Softball hosted the Wildcat Invitational last weekend and won all of the 5 games that they played, beating UC Riverside, Boston University, and Portland State. They will finish the tournement next weekend.
Arizona is perfect at home this season, sweeping the Hillenbrand Invitational 5-0 and the Wildcat Invitational 5-0.
Like Arizona, Boise State opened the season in Tempe, Ariz., at the Kajikawa Classic, going 2-3. Then it went 2-3 in San Antonio, Texas, at the UTSA Classic, 3-1 at the UC Riverside Softball Invitational and 2-3 at the San Diego Classic.
The Broncos are 0-3 against Pac-12 teams, but did lose 5-4 in 11 innings to No. 9 UCLA in San Diego. Boise State beat Utah State 2-0 and UC Riverside 4-2, teams Arizona also defeated, and lost to Portland State 2-1, which Arizona beat twice at home.

Due to the Tucson Festival of Books and men’s basketball game Saturday, the UA is recommending fans arrive early.
Parking lots near Hillenbrand will be reserved for the basketball game until 3:30 p.m. and Cherry Avenue will be closed to vehicle traffic near Second Street, so the UA suggests fans park north of Speedway Boulevard for softball.
