Wisconsin K Rafael Gaglianone Announces Plan To Honor Sam Foltz Saturday

Wisconsin kicker Rafael Gaglianone will honor late Nebraska punter Sam Foltz Saturday.

Gaglianone, who is out for the season with a back injury, will walk onto the field with Nebraska kicker Drew Brown. The two will hold Foltz' No. 27 jersey.

Before his injury, Gaglianone had already changed his number to 27 to pay tribute to Foltz. Surely, this will be an emotional scene on Saturday. Additionally, Gaglianone is expected to spend time with Nebraska players and Foltz's family on Friday, according to Scout's Benjamin Worgull.

Wisconsin-Nebraska gets underway 7 p.m. ET Saturday on ESPN. It's a meeting between the No. 7 and No. 11 teams in the nation. Should be a good one.
