All UA employees must renew online. Season ticket holders who renew by Feb. 28 will receive a $15 Arizona Athletics gift certificate.
The Arizona football team will enter the 2009 season with seven returning starters on each side of the ball, including All-American tight end Rob Gronkowski. Arizona finished the 2008 season ranked No. 16 in scoring offense (36.6 points per game) and No. 24 in total defense (313 yards per game).
The Wildcats will host six games in Arizona Stadium, where they have posted a 9-4 record over the past two seasons. On the home slate will be a season-opening showdown on Sept. 5 against Central Michigan of the Mid American Conference, a program that has made three consecutive bowl appearances. Arizona will host its intrastate rival, Northern Arizona, on Sept. 12 before entering the home conference schedule.
Conference rivals Stanford (Oct. 17), UCLA (Oct. 24), Washington State (Nov. 7) and Oregon (Nov. 21) will travel to Tucson.
