Wisconsin kicker Rafael Gaglianone will wear No. 27 in honor of late Nebraska punter Sam Foltz, the Badgers announced Monday.
Foltz and former Michigan State punter Mike Sadler were killed in a car crash Saturday night in Wisconsin. Also in the vehicle was LSU punter Colby Delahoussaye, who was transported to a local hospital.
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.
Gaglianone is entering his third season as the Badgers’ starting kicker. He made 19 of his 22 field goals last season for an 86.4% conversion rate.
