Tennessee football will remember the late Nebraska punter Sam Foltz in the Music City Bowl.
Foltz and former Michigan State P Mike Sadler both died in a car accident this July. Nebraska and its foes have honored Foltz throughout the season, including helmet decals.
The Volunteers will have a special helmet decal for Friday’s Music City Bowl. With Tennessee playing Nebraska, the Volunteers will have a red “SF27” decal on their helmets.

In Nebraska’a first game this season, the Huskers took to the field without a punter on what would have been the team’s first punt. Fresno State declined the penalty out of respect.
We'll always remember #SF27.
Well done, @HuskerFBNation & HUskers fans.
