SALT LAKE CITY- It was no secret that Utah would be wearing their hand painted Ty Jordan and Aaron Lowe tribute helmets against USC this weekend. It was also long suspected that if the game took place at night, the Utes would wear their black uniforms with the custom helmets. What was not known was how Utah football would present the uniforms, and it beyond touching.
Utes Equipment can be seen preparing both Jordan and Lowe’s lockers with care, just like they have for every game since both players were tragically taken last year. Utah’s special hand painted helmets that have portraits of the two players along with the “22 Forever” logo on the back are front and center in the uniform reveal video.

The video then flashes to the “Moment of Loudness” which is also depicted in the helmets with the white spots all over representing fan cell phones.
Ty Joran And Aaron Lowe 22 Forever
Jordan and Lowe are the only Utah football players in program history to ever have their jersey number retired due to the harsh nature of how and why they were taken far too soon.
The uniforms with the special hand painted helmets were revealed back in the spring in the last episode of Utah football’s mini-docu-series “22 Forever”. Since then, the Utes have announced that both players families will be in attendance as the team wears the helmets against #7 USC to honor, remember and celebrate Jordan and Lowe’s legacies within the program.

Utah has memorialized Jordan and Lowe and they impact they have had on Utah Athletics as a whole in several different ways including a tribute in Portal 22 at Rice-Eccles Stadium, a special turf logo where the team walks by to enter their locker room, the Ty Jordan and Aaron Lowe Memorial Scholarship, as well as the “Moment of Loudness” between the third and fourth quarters of every Utah football home game.
