The University of Oregon released a statement of apology Sunday after a video surfaced online showing the football program’s student section chanting “F--- the Mormons” during Saturday’s home game against Brigham Young University.

“The University of Oregon sincerely apologizes for an offensive and disgraceful chant coming from the student section during yesterday’s game against Brigham Young University,” the statement read, as reported by Sports Illustrated. â€śThese types of actions go against everything the university stands for, and it goes against the spirit of competition. We can and will do better as a campus community that has no place for hate, bias or bigotry.”
