BYU Oregon Football

Oregon running back Noah Whittington gets past BYU defenders Saturday in Eugene. Gov. Kate Brown and UO officials condemned chants made during the football game directed at BYU and Mormons.

Oregon Gov. Kate Brown said called chants directed at BYU and Mormons during Saturday’s University of Oregon football game “unacceptable.”

“In Oregon, we strive to be a welcoming, inclusive state to all, regardless of race, religion, gender, or background,” Brown wrote via Twitter. “Our state and nation have an ugly history of discrimination and bigotry. The chant at yesterday’s Oregon-BYU game was unacceptable. We must do better.”

I thought they were saying "Let's go Borman". Isn't he one of the running backs?


From a lifelong Oregonian very embarrassing that students representing a state university would act like this. I hope the people in the student section are identified and if they are students, they are punished for the poor judgement.
