LINCOLN, Neb. – In honor of Sam Foltz, who died in a car accident in late July, the Nebraska football team brought out only 10 men for their first punt of the season.
Nebraska was given a 5 yard delay of game penalty, but received a standing ovation.
We'll always remember #SF27.
Well done, @HuskerFBNation & HUskers fans.

Foltz, 22, would have been a senior this year. He was an All-Big Ten punter in 2015.
Nebraska also honored Foltz before the game by handing out the Sam Foltz Memorial Scholarship, who they gave to junior kicker Drew Brown.
We had to take a delay of game, weren't able to get all 11 guys out to punt in time.
