Nebraska Takes Delay Of Game On 1st Punt Of Season To Honor Sam Foltz

Nebraska honoring Sam Foltz by taking a delay of game penalty.


Nebraska only had 10 players on the field for its first punt of the season.

This was intentional.

Nebraska intentionally did not send out a punter at the end of their first series, honoring former Huskers' punter Sam Foltz, who passed away in a car crash this summer. The Huskers took a delay of game penalty.

It's a tremendous gesture.

Nebraska is also honoring Foltz, who died in a car crash with former Michigan State special teamer Mike Sadler, with a helmet sticker. They're keeping his locker in-tact, too.

Well done, Nebraska football.
