All campus rules stayed in effect, including mask-wearing, the completion of the UA daily wellness check, social distancing, and more.

Fans were asked to arrive from the south to avoid traffic congestion at the Vaccine P.O.D. And, should park in south stadium garage or south of Sixth Street lots.

"Obviously, I was very sad that they didn’t get the win… they were so close," said University of Arizona student Leena Idris. "But, to see how far they’ve come and to see how great that they’ve done, I’m just so incredibly proud of them and wish them the best for the coming season.”
