Nebraska honoring fallen UCLA player


The Huskers and Bruins may be opponents on Saturday, but they're coming together to honor the memory of fallen UCLA player Nick Pasquale.

The Nebraska Cornhuskers and their fans are honoring former UCLA football player Nick Pasquale, who passed away earlier this week. The Huskers will wear a "36" helmet sticker, which was Pasquale's number, and the student section will release 200 gold and blue balloons after a pre-game moment of silence to honor his memory.





UCLA will wear a "36" patch on their jersey for the rest of the season, and will also dedicate an empty locker for Pasquale for each game for the rest of the year, home and away.
