SALT LAKE CITY – Utah football is a week out from their 22 Forever Game, renamed from the Red and White Game in honor of Ty Jordan and Aaron Lowe.

The name change isn’t the only new thing going on with the Utes’ spring football game in 2023 as the Athletic Department also announced the return of the Ultimate Tailgate challenge for fans to participate in ahead of the annual spring game.

Here is everything you need to know to be prepared for all of the fun and festivities about to take place on Saturday, April 22.
