LINCOLN, NE (KPTV) -
Before the Oregon Ducks even took the field in Lincoln they made some new fans in Nebraska by honoring a fallen Husker.
Coach Mark Helfrich and kicker Matt Wogan placed flowers at the 27-yard line of Tom Osborne field as a memorial for punter Sam Foltz, who wore number 27 for Nebraska.
Foltz died in a car wreck, along with former Michigan State punter Mike Sadler, while returning from a kicking camp in Wisconsin this summer.
