LAS VEGAS – Utah fans celebrate tradition of “Moment of Loudness” heading into the fourth quarter as they look for their second straight Pac-12 title.

The conference title game between the No. 11 Utes and No. 4 Trojans took place at Allegiant Stadium, home of the NFL’s Las Vegas Raiders, on Friday, December 2.

The Pac-12 Championship Game is televised on FOX.

A Tradition Is Born?

The “Moment of Loudness” was originally conceived to honor running back Ty Jordan whose only season with the Utes was the shortened 2020 Covid-19 year with no fans in the stands. Once news of Jordan’s death became known, fans immediately wanted to do something for the upcoming 2021 season to pay homage to the late running back who looked to be on a trajectory of greatness.

When Lowe was taken far too soon late last September, the accompanying video was modified to feature both players and their brilliant smiles with a reminder to be “22% Better” every day in their honor.

Pac-12 Championship Game: Utah vs. USC

The Pac-12 Championship Game is here and features a top-15 matchup between the Utes and the College Football Playoff-hopeful Trojans.

Utah enters the matchup looking to defend its Pac-12 crown against USC, who will almost assuredly secure a spot among the four teams to compete in the College Football Playoff. It’s an intriguing contest between a pair of former Pac-12 South teams, especially after the Utes handed the Trojans their only loss of the season in October. That game took place at Rice-Eccles Stadium in Salt Lake City.

Will Utah beat the same team twice or will USC avenge its only blemish of the season?

Utah arrives in Las Vegas after winning five of its final six games in the regular season. The Trojans are winners for five consecutive games, including wins over two top-25 programs to end their regular season slate.

Trojans quarterback Caleb Williams is a frontrunner to win the Heisman Trophy as the nation’s top player. A strong performance and win over the Utes could secure history for the young signal-caller.

Utes quarterback Cam Rising and tight end Dalton Kincaid look to lead the Utah offense to another 10-win season and a second straight Pac-12 title.

This is Utah’s fourth Pac-12 title game appearance in the last five seasons. It’s USC’s first trip to the conference championship since 2020, when the Trojans fell to the Oregon Ducks. Utah and USC each have four appearances in the game since its inception in 2011.
