This is Arizona's second game to be postponed due to a positive COVID-19 test after Wednesday's season opener against NAU was cancelled after a positive test was found within the Lumberjacks program.

“This news is very disappointing to the student-athletes, coaches and fans,” the UA said in a release Friday. “However, health and safety must remain our top priorities as we move forward this season.” 

It is currently unknown if the game will be made up. The next game on the Wildcats schedule is against Colorado on Dec. 2 in Tucson.
