SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- The University of Utah's record setting football season may be setting some new records for noise.

During the team's season finale against rival Brigham Young, managers will be monitoring the noise emitted by the stadium speakers.

The school has received increasing complaints from neighbors this year. Most of the complaints are coming from people who live north of the stadium.

At issue is the cluster of scoreboard speakers that are part of a video scoreboard system installed last year. The nationally-ranked Utes have played more night games at home this year to accommodate television.

The school's vice president for administrative relations says the school wants to be a good neighbor. Norman Chambers says some volume adjustments have already been made to the speakers.
