Illinois players showed their respect for Sam Foltz before kickoff Saturday.
The Illini specialists — kickers, punters and long snappers — presented a customized Illinois No. 27 jersey with Foltz's name on the back to the Huskers about an hour before kickoff. The Nebraska players then placed the jersey next to the Husker Foltz jersey that occupies a spot for every game.
The jersey had also been signed by several Illinois players.
Here's a video of the moment Illinois presented Nebraska with the jersey and more pictures:
