IN JULY, NEBRASKA punter Sam Foltz and Michigan State punter Mike Sadler were killed in a car accident returning from a kicking camp.
On Saturday, the Nebraska football team honoured Foltz with a great moment during their first game of the season.
On the first possession of the game, Nebraska faced a fourth down. When the punt team came out, only 10 players took the field, leaving the punter’s position empty.
The Cornhuskers eventually took a delay-of-game penalty as a way to honour their teammate.
Here is the video.
Nebraska then sent out this tweet, noting that they had to take the penalty because they were “missing” one of their players.
Prior to the game, the Nebraska student section, nicknamed The Boneyard, displayed their usual tifo. However, this week’s tifo honored Foltz with a sign that simply said “SF.”
