On Saturday morning ahead of the game between Nebraska and Michigan State, the two teams took the field to honor fallen teammates. Specialists Sam Foltz and Mike Sadler passed away two years ago after they were involved in a car accident.

Before the game, head coaches Scott Frost and Mark Dantonio joined the families of Sadler and Foltz at midfield. The two teams also placed flowers at the 27-yard line and 3-yard line (the numbers on the jerseys worn by Foltz and Sadler).

The Big Ten Network published video of the tribute.

Although Frost wasn't head coach of the Huskers when Sadler passed, he joined the family on the field.

The two teams will take the field again at noon for kickoff. Nebraska is hoping to win its fourth contest of the season, while the Spartans hope to get back in the win column after a loss to Ohio State.
