The tributes for Sam Foltz throughout the 2016 season have been memorable.

From not accepting a delay of game penalty to opposing teams presenting Nebraska with an autographed Foltz jerseys, the late Husker punter has been a fixture in essentially every game this year.

That will continue into bowl season.

Nebraska learned on Thursday that Tennessee will honor Foltz in the Music City Bowl by wearing a decal with his initials and number:

Foltz was tragically killed in a car accident over the summer along with former Michigan State punter Mike Sadler. The B1G honored the two with a commemorative coin for conference play.

Nebraska is honoring the victims of the East TennesseeĀ fire victims with a “Mountain Tough” decal.

The two teams will square off on Friday at 2:30 p.m. CT.
