LAS VEGAS – The Pac-12 Championship Game has their honorary captains ahead of the big showdown between Utah and Oregon.

Utah football confirmed to KSL Sports that Aaron Lowe’s mother, Donna Lowe-Sterns will be the Utes’ honorary captain. Oregon will have former Heisman Trophy winner and current Las Vegas Raiders quarterback Marcus Mariota serve as the Ducks’ honorary captain.

Aaron Lowe was tragically shot and killed at a house party in Sugarhouse, Utah on Sunday, September 26 early in the morning.

Lowe was the first recipient of the Ty Jordan Memorial Scholarship and switched his number from 2 to 22 during the offseason to honor the life of his childhood friend, who tragically died from an accidental gunshot wound on December 25, 2020.

Lowe signed with Utah in 2019 as a three-star recruit out of West Mesquite High School. He played in 11 games on special teams as a freshman. During the COVID-19 shortened season, Lowe played in all five games on special teams in 2020.

Utah and Oregon will square off at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, Nevada on Friday, December 3 at 6 p.m. MT on ABC.
