Fall in Love with College Football

School is back in session, and the start of the new semester means everyone from incoming freshmen to alumni are filled with school spirit. The start of the new school year is an especially wonderful time to visit campuses across the country, as each city and school basks in the fall weather and buzzes with student activity. Among the many traditions that accompany the students’ return to campus – and the ultimate attraction for many college destinations – is the beginning of football season.

In Tucson, the return of college football means the return of the University of Arizona Wildcats to Arizona Stadium. Built in 1928 as a 7,000-seat stadium located in the heart of the city, Arizona Stadium has grown into a 56,000-plus-seat temple for college football. A must-visit for college football fans, the stadium blends modern amenities with old-style charm.

Guests of Red Lion Inn & Suites Tucson North – Foothills enjoy convenient access to this renowned college destination. Whether you’re a returning alumnus, a proud parent, or simply visiting the area, taking in a Wildcats game at Arizona Stadium is an outstanding Tucson attraction. Make a day of it by tailgating outside the stadium before an exciting afternoon of Pac-12 football with teams like UCLA, Oregon State, and Utah, then return to the comfortable accommodations of your room at Red Lion.

Picked by Sports Illustrated to finish fourth in the Pac-12, one of the nation’s toughest conferences, Arizona defends its Pac-12 South Division crown in 2015. Linebacker Scooby Wright is one of the country’s best defensive players, and quarterback Anu Solomon looks to build on a solid freshman season.
