Previous season

Main article: 2020 Arizona Wildcats football team

The Wildcats finished the 2020 season 0–5 in Pac-12 play to finish in last place in the South Division. The Wildcats had games scheduled against Hawaii, Portland State, and Texas Tech, but cancelled these games on July 10, 2020, due to the PAC-12 Conference's decision to play a conference-only schedule because of the COVID-19 pandemic. On December 12, 2020, Kevin Sumlin was fired after three seasons following a 70–7 loss to ASU in the Territorial Cup on December 11, 2020; Sumlin finished at Arizona with a Pac-12 record of 9–20. On December 23, 2020, the University of Arizona hired Jedd Fisch as the program's 32nd head coach.
