Northwestern joins previous Husker opponents in honoring Foltz. Oregon placed flowers on Nebraska’s 27-yard line this past Saturday, while Fresno State declined a penalty after the Huskers took a delay of game to honor Foltz earlier this season. The Bulldogs also wore helmet stickers for Foltz:

It’s a classy move as the Huskers continue to mourn the loss of Foltz.
