Nebraska football: Sam Foltz remembered on season's first punt

  Sam Foltz was one of two collegiate punters who died in a car accident July 23.

Nebraska football honored its former punter Sam Foltz with a touching tribute early on in its season opener with Fresno State Saturday night. 

In Nebraska's first punting situation of the season, it sent out only 10 players leaving no one at the punter's position.

The Huskers took a delay of game penalty, which Fresno State respectfully declined.

Foltz, who was 22 and preparing for his senior season at Nebraska, was one of two players killed in a car crash on July 23 along with Michigan State punter Mike Sadler. On Saturday, Foltz's two nephews along with Huskers Drew Brown and Spencer Lindsay led the team out of the tunnel.
