Many teams have honored the former punter this year in several ways. In the first game of the season against Fresno State, before Nebraska’s first punt, the Huskers lined up with 10 men on the field with a vacant spot on the field for Foltz. The play clock expired and a delay of game was called. Fresno State declined the penalty.
Last week, the Oregon Ducks placed an arrangement of green and yellow flowers on the 27-yard-line prior to kickoff.
