The one-game deal calls for the Bison and Wildcats to play Saturday, Sept. 17, 2022, at Arizona Stadium in Tucson.
It will be NDSU's first game against Arizona and the second of three for the Bison against Pac-12 opponents. They also have road games scheduled with Oregon in 2020 and with Colorado in 2024.
