With Arizona Basketball now officially over, the show goes on for Arizona Football as the Wildcats officially kick off Spring for the 2024 season.

As March Madness and in particular, Arizona Basketball captivated the Tucson sports world with electrifying basketball action over the past several weeks, lost in the sauce was Arizona Football gearing up for the 2024 season.

Amidst the fervor of the basketball teams' postseason run, the Wildcats have begun its highly-anticipated spring slate of practices.

Over the years, the Wildcats have seen their fair share of highs and lows, but after a remarkable run capitalized by an emphatic win over college football powerhouse Oklahoma in the 2023 Alamo Bowl, hopes are riding high for a town starving for consistent football success.

Fresh off of a 10-win season and hiring Brent Brennan, there's a growing buzz surrounding the gridiron aspirations for Arizona Football in 2024.

One of the primary catalysts for the heightened enthusiasm is the arrival of the newly hired head coach, Brent Brennan. An experienced coach who understands and appreciates the history of Arizona Football, Brennan has injected a renewed sense of energy and optimism into the program.

Additionally, the Wildcats boast a roster brimming with potential and talent, including several key returning players who are poised to make significant contributions on both sides of the ball this year.

Moreover, the timing of spring practice couldn't come at a better time. As March Madness turned into yet another March Sadness in Tucson, fans can turn their focus to football and hopefully help cope with Arizona Basketball falling short of yet another Final Four.

Of course, with great anticipation of the 2024 Arizona Football season, also comes great expectations as well. Coming in, hopes are high for the Wildcats; however, it is important to note that there may be a bit of an adjustment as well. Remember, this is an entirely new staff, and the Wildcats did lose some key pieces, particularly on defense.

Nonetheless, as the countdown to kickoff continues and the excitement continues to build on the coming season, one thing is certain—the Arizona Wildcats football team is ready to build on the 2023 season!
