“The offensive chant from our student section directed towards BYU during the football game last night does not align with our Trojan values,” USC’s athletic department said in a tweet Sunday. “It was distasteful and we apologize to the BYU program.”
“I did not hear the chant but I know it does not reflect the Trojan family that I’ve come to know and love,” USC defensive line coach Vic So’oto said in a tweet.
So’oto, who played on BYU’s football team for four years, apologized and tagged BYU’s head coach Kalani Sitake and athletic director Tom Holmoe.
CNN has reached out to BYU for a comment.
