During their season-opener against Fresno State, Nebraska honored its late punter, Sam Foltz, who was killed in a car crash in July.

On a 4th-and-4 early in the game, the team came out with 10 men, in punt formation, without a punter. Players on both sides, as well as fans, clapped and cheered to remember the legacy of Foltz and former Michigan State punter Mike Sadler, who was also killed in the crash.

After about a minute, they punted the ball away.

Foltz was the Big Ten Punter of the Year last season and led the conference with 44.2 yards per punt. He was on the Ray Guy watch list for best punter in the nation this season.
