Nebraska releases touching Sam Foltz tribute on Senior Day

Earlier this season, the Nebraska Cornhuskers football program was rocked with the untimely passing of one of their football players. Sam Foltz was involved in a single car collision in July while returning from a punting competition in Wisconsin. He was with fellow Big Ten punter Mike Sadler who also passed away.

With senior day arriving in Nebraska this week, the Cornhuskers prepared a touching video in Foltz memory. The season has be something of a memorial tour wherever the Cornhuskers have gone as opposing teams have showed an outpouring of support and sympathy for the team and the Foltz family.

It will be a day filled with complex emotions for all of the Nebraska faithful. They will be playing an undermanned Maryland Terrapins team this week and will be looking to move to 9-2.

The Terrapins recently dismissed their freshman stud running back Lorenzo Harrison following his arrested for shooting a BB gun and various students on campus.

Nebraska will be a galvanized unit, playing for something more than a mark in the win column this week.
