Following Oregon’s classy tribute to Sam Foltz last Saturday, Illinois has the latest team to pay their respects to the late Nebraska and Michigan State punters Sam Foltz and Mike Sadler, respectively.
In advance to this weekend’s game, members of the Illinois special teams group made shirts to commemorate the two punters, who were killed in a car accident in late July.
A picture of the shirt was Tweeted by the Illinois football special teams unit, who have their own Twitter account.

The classy gesture comes two weeks before Illinois plays Nebraska in Memorial Stadium on Oct. 1, and little over a month before the Illini play Michigan State in Champaign.
