Utah governor calls out UO fans’ chants against Mormons in BYU game

The Oregon student section cheers during a Saturday, Sept. 17, 2022, game against BYU at Autzen Stadium in Eugene, Ore.

The Utah governor took to Twitter Saturday night to call out the behavior of University of Oregon fans during the game at Autzen Stadium against Brigham Young University.

UO’s student section, The Pit Crew, has since issued a public apology, as have university officials.

In a video posted to Twitter, which has garnered nearly half a million views as of Sunday morning, Oregon fans in the school’s student section can be seen chanting “F— the Mormons.” BYU is a private university sponsored by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.


Utah Gov. Spencer Cox retweeted the video, calling it “religious bigotry alive and celebrated in Oregon.”
