Nebraska's late Sam Foltz wore No. 27, so Oregon put a beautiful tribute on the 27-yard line

New, comments

Oregon placed flowers on the field to honor Sam Foltz, the Nebraska punter who passed away during the offseason. Apparently, the move was orchestrated by coach Mark Helfrich.

We love the move by the Ducks, who went out of their way to extend a tribute to a community still healing over the loss of one of their own. Nebraska honored Foltz in their own way during Week 1, lining up 10 players in punt formation.
