(KUTV) -- The University of Utah and Brigham Young University shared a rare moment of solidarity during Saturday's football game in Salt Lake City as both schools honored slain U of U student Lauren McCluskey.

Both teams wore stickers on the back of their helmets featuring a winged foot and the name "Lauren," who was a track star at the U.

Jill McCluskey, Lauren's mother, thanked both teams for honoring her daughter, who was murdered last month by a registered sex offender.

Lauren has been honored by athletes including Utah Jazz star Donovan Mitchell and The University of Oregon.
