Nebraska punter Sam Foltz and former Michigan State punter Mike Sadler passed in a tragic car accident in late July.

Ohio State, like all Big Ten games on Sept. 28th, used a memorial coin during the flip against Rutgers.

The honors won't stop there.

Nebraska visits the Horseshoe on Saturday for the first time since 2012.

On Wednesday, Ohio State spokesman Jerry Emig announced the pregame pageantry will feature "a number of tributes" to the late Husker punter, including a plaque as well as offerings from the Ohio State band and student section.

Block "O" will also do a memorial card stunt during the Huskers' first punt of the game.

"When our Director of Football Operations came up with this stunt, it was a no brainer," Block "O" president Adam Watson told Eleven Warriors. "When you're a part of the Big Ten, you join the family of schools and student bodies. This is our way of paying our respects to the Nebraska football team and student body still dealing with his loss."

Buckeye players will also don a helmet decal in honor of legendary offensive lineman John Hicks, who passed Sunday.
