Two Big Ten programs are set to put on a pre-game ceremony that will bring tears to the eyes of fans everywhere.
On Saturday afternoon when Michigan State and Nebraska take the field, the two teams will take the field together to honor two players who passed away in 2016.
The Huskers and Spartans will honor Sam Foltz and Mike Sadler in the first meeting between the two teams since the players passed away on July 23, 2016. The parents of both players will join head coaches Scott Frost and Mark Dantonio on the field for a pre-game ceremony.
Here’s the news from Tom Shatel of the World-Herald.
Nebraska and Michigan State will honor Sam Foltz and Mike Sadler during a pre-game ceremony on Saturday involving the head coaches, parents of Foltz and Sadler and specialists of both teams. It's the first meeting between NU and MSU since Foltz and Sadler died on July 23, 2016.

The ceremony will take place just over an hour before kickoff so it’s unlikely to be televised. Nebraska will also honor its seniors before the game as well, which will take place between the Foltz-Sadler ceremony and kickoff.
The game kicks off from Memorial Stadium in Lincoln at 12:00 p.m. ET. It will be televised on FOX.
