For the first time in school history, Utah has officially retired a number in its football program.

The No. 22 received that hallowed designation Saturday night between the first and second quarters of the Utes’ game against UCLA at Rice-Eccles Stadium.

Retiring No. 22 was yet another way the school has honored two players who have lost their lives in the past year.

Running back Ty Jordan died Dec. 25 and defensive back Aaron Lowe died Sept. 26.

Below the press box at Rice-Eccles Stadium, a banner featuring No. 22 and the names of Jordan and Lowe is now displayed.
