The Illini and Wildcats won’t play this regular season.

Illinois’ Dec. 12 matchup against Arizona at State Farm Center has been delayed for a year, according to a release from the team.

The return game was part of a home-and-home that started last year between the two storied programs. Illinois lost last year’s game, but was hoping to relive the magic from the 2005 Elite Eight game at Allstate Arena this December.

We still don’t know much about Illinois’ schedule, but we do know the season is slated to begin Nov. 25.
