Nebraska Cornhuskers lost their punter Sam Foltz in a car accident earlier this year and the players and fans paid tribute to their fallen teammate on Saturday against Fresno State.

The special teams unit, which usually lines up with 11 players, only lined up with ten to remember and honour their teammate in an emotional display as they were cheered on by their hordes of supporters.

As another tribute, his friend Rafael Gaglianone, changed his number and name to that of Foltz.
