The “Moment of Loudness” has become an integral tradition for the Utes over the past two seasons as a way for the team and fans to honor running back Ty Jordan and cornerback Aaron Lowe who tragically passed away during the 2021 season. The “Moment of Loudness” has recently evolved in the 2022 football season to include all beloved members of the Utah football family who are no longer with us.
The Utes featured the “Moment of Loudness” in last season’s Rose Bowl debut against Ohio State to rave reviews. With plans of doing the same thing, the Utah football Twitter account said the event will take place in the 3rd quarter during the fourth break, or in the 4th quarter during the first break.
Rose Bowl Game: Penn State vs. Utah
The No. 8 Utes and No. 11 Nittany Lions played at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California on Monday, January 2.
The Rose Bowl Game between the Nittany Lions and the Utes is televised on ESPN.
After winning its second straight Pac-12 Conference Championship, Utah earned a spot in the Rose Bowl Game in back-to-back seasons.
Last year’s Rose Bowl contest featured the Utes and the Ohio State Buckeyes. After Utah QB Cam Rising went down with an injury in the second half, the Buckeyes came back from down double-digits to capture a 48-45 win.
Before being replaced by Barnes, Rising was 17/22 passing for 214 yards and two touchdowns.
This season, Rising and the Utes look to avenge the loss and pick up their first Rose Bowl Game victory.
Utah enters the game with a 10-3 record this season. Penn State arrived in California with a 10-2 record.
After winning its first five games of the season, the Nittany Lions dropped two of three games in losses to Michigan and Ohio State. Penn State won its final four regular season games.
