TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - The Wildcats are calling Saturday's game against #18 Oregon State "the copper game." The Cats will be sporting copper helmets during their showdown with the Beavers.
Despite the new gear, following a 49-0 shut out at last week's game versus the Oregon Ducks, UA players are more concerned with how they play than how they look.
"Obviously we can take stuff from (last) Saturday night and kind of take that and move on with it," said linebacker Jake Fischer. "I think the mood of the team is we're just ready for Oregon State. I think you're gonna see a different team Saturday."
Also different this Saturday?
Due to a community event at Hi Corbett Field, Sun Tran's UA football shuttle boarding location has changed. There will be two boarding locations at:
-- 900 S. Randolph Way - Passengers can park along Randolph Way near the Reid Park Zoo entrance just north of 22nd Street.
-- Bus pullout on the northeast corner of 22nd Street at Country Club Road - Passengers can park in the lot on the northeast corner of 22nd Street at Country Club Road. Enter the parking lot from Lakeshore Drive off 22nd Street.
Kickoff is at 7 p.m.
