Earlier this year, it was reported that Nebraska punter Sam Foltz was killed in a tragic car accident along with Michigan State kicker Mike Sadler. The Cornhuskers entered their first game without the punter today against Fresno State and the inevitable happened as they were forced to punt.
However, instead of lining up with a new punter, they did so without one and only 10 men on the field. They were flagged for delay of game, but the Bulldogs pulled a classy move and declined the penalty.

Penalty is declined. Classy move, Fresno.

That is certainly a fantastic tribute by the Cornhuskers and a very classy move by Fresno State. Nebraska is still mourning the loss of Foltz, but this is a great way to remember him one last time.
