SAN FRANCISCO - The final episode of “22 Forever,” Utah Football’s four-part series telling the story of an unforgettable 2021 season, premieres Thursday, April 7 at 7 p.m. PT / 8 p.m. MT on Pac-12 Network.
 
With the goal of winning the Pac-12 and reaching the Rose Bowl closer than ever, fans are taken behind the scenes as the Utes prepare for the Pac-12 Championship game against Oregon.
 
In front of a sea of red at Allegiant Stadium, the Utes came out strong against the Ducks with a pair of touchdowns in the first quarter, highlighted by Devin Lloyd’s 34-yard pick six which he capped off by honoring Ty Jordan and Aaron Lowe and holding up “22.”
 
Utah continued to roll with big plays on offense and defense, going up 31-3 heading into the fourth quarter. The Moment of Loudness made the trip to Las Vegas, rallying thousands of Utah fans as they cheered for Jordan and Lowe.
 
“We had an opportunity now to cherish and maximize what Aaron and Ty did, and the impact they had on our program,” said Director of Football Operations Adam Fry. “To see that in the Pac-12 Championship, when we did the Moment of Loudness, and have the entire Allegiant Stadium lit up with the lights and how loud it was inside the dome was just unbelievable, it was something that I’ll remember for the rest of my life.”
 
The Utes completed their goal, earning their first Pac-12 title in program history and punching a ticket to the Rose Bowl. Utah was fired up to suit up for The Granddaddy of Them All, facing off against a strong Ohio State team.
 
Once again the Utes came out hot, with back-to-back touchdown passes from Cameron Rising to put Utah up 14-0 after the first 15 minutes. Midway through the second quarter, Britain Covey electrified the stadium with a 97-yard kickoff return for a touchdown, as the Utes carried a 35-21 lead into halftime.
 
The Buckeyes leveled the score early in the fourth quarter, and despite a strong push, the Utes were unable to hold off Ohio State as they took the lead with nine seconds left.
 
The 108th Rose Bowl was an instant classic, and regardless of the result on the scoreboard, the 2021 Utah football season was one to be proud of. The Utes rallied together to create a season unlike any other, despite unprecedented adversity faced, the highest of highs and lowest of lows, to make their brothers proud.
 
“It doesn’t matter how you start, or what happens in the middle of the season, it’s about how you finish, it’s about how you go forward, it’s about getting through things with other people,” said Covey. “Football is not an individual sport, you know, it’s a team sport, and thank goodness because if it were just me I wouldn’t be able to do anything, and so I can rely on the guys next to me, it's a metaphor for life.” 
 
“The bond, again going back to the team chemistry, and the way these guys genuinely love each other, it’s just a joy to be around and to watch,” said head coach Kyle Whittingham. “To see it unfold right before your eyes, and those relationships and the genuine caring for each other, and concern for each other. We have a lot of sayings on this team, but one is, ‘Don’t fall in love with yourself, fall in love with the team,’ and you can just see that happening, you can see that happening right before our eyes.”
 
The fourth episode will re-air on Thursday, April 7 at 7:30 p.m. PT / 8:30 p.m. MT, and all four episodes will air in order on Friday, April 8 beginning at 2 p.m. PT / 3 p.m. MT. Listings for future re-airs can be found here.
