Photo: Illinois Gives Michigan State Signed Mike Sadler Jersey

Illinois paid tribute to Mike Sadler ahead of its game against Michigan State on Saturday.

This past summer, both Nebraska punter Sam Foltz and Michigan State former punter Mike Sadler were killed in a car crash returning from a kicking camp in Wisconsin. This season, a number of teams have presented both the Cornhuskers and the Spartans with special gifts to help honor their memories. Illinois has been at the top of the list.

Saturday, the Illini gave Michigan State an Illinois Mike Sadler jersey, signed by everyone on the team. They did the same for Sam Foltz earlier in the year - check it out:

Very cool. The Spartans and Illini are currently playing over on ESPN News.
