There is some sad news to pass along in the college football world Sunday, with reports that 22-year-old Nebraska Cornhuskers punter Sam Foltz has died at age 22.

Per reports, Foltz passed away in a tragic car accident.

Very few details are available.

Foltz was the Cornhuskers starter for three seasons and was set to enter his fifth season with the program. Foltz averaged 44.2 yards per punt for the Huskers during the 2015 season, en route to earning first-team Big 10 honors.
