Arizona adds Hawaii to future schedule
By ESPN.com staff
Arizona announced Tuesday a home-and-home series with Hawaii for the 2019 and 2020 seasons.
The teams will play Aug. 31, 2019 in Honolulu and Sept. 5, 2020 in Tucson.
Arizona and Hawaii have met four times with the Wildcats winning each contest, most recently in 1998 when former Wildcat head coach Dick Tomey, who also spent time at the helm of the Warrior program, led 24th-ranked Arizona to a 27-6 victory at Aloha Stadium.
Hawaii hired Norm Chow as its head coach this offseason. Chow, obviously, has plenty of Pac-12 connections.
“We are pleased to announce this series with the University of Hawaii. It will give our fans a great opportunity to follow our football team to Hawaii and it will be another attractive game at Arizona Stadium,” Arizona athletic director Greg Byrne said in a statement.
