Saturday’s UCLA-Nebraska game is certain to be an emotional one. It can’t be anything but following the sudden death of UCLA walk-on freshman receiver Nick Pasquale. Pasquale was hit by a car and killed while walking in San Clemente, Calif., early Sunday morning.
Both UCLA and Nebraska will honor Pasquale on Saturday, with the Bruins wearing a No. 36 patch on their jersey and the Huskers a No. 36 decal on their helmet.
RIP Nicholas Pasquale, to UCLA players, fans and family alike, our hearts and prayers go out to you in the coming weeks.—

UCLA looks to get the most applause in Memorial Stadium in a while. Before and after kickoff, regardless of the score.—
