On Monday, the UA announced that it will broadcast the Red-Blue Game.
The intra-squad scrimmage, which sold out for the third year in a row, will be streamed for free. Fans who don’t have the Pac-12 Network can watch it too.
Arizona radio announcers Brian Jeffries and Matt Muehlebach will provide commentary starting at 2:30 p.m. on Saturday.
“Obviously, the experience of attending the Red-Blue Game is second to none,” head coach Sean Miller said in a press release. “This event is made special thanks in large part to the 14,545 fans who pack McKale [Center] to support our team. However, with the immense demand for tickets to this year’s Red-Blue Game, we felt that a webcast of the event would be a gesture to the many members of our outstanding fan base who aren’t able to attend.”
Last year’s McDonald’s Red-Blue Game had nearly 6,500 viewers and was the second-most viewed web stream by a Pac-12 school during the 2012-13 academic year, behind only the Wildcats’ exhibition victory over Humboldt State later that month.
The Red/Blue game will start at 3 p.m., with doors opening at 1 p.m.
In addition to the scrimmage, the UA will also feature a celebration of the 20th anniversary of Arizona’s 1994 Final Four team. Members of the 1993-94 squad will serve as judges for the slam dunk contest.
