The Nebraska punter and former Michigan State punter died late Saturday night in a one-car accident returning from a kicking camp in Wisconsin.

Foltz, the 2015 Big Ten Punter of the Year, was set to begin his senior season, while Sadler, who spent four seasons as the Spartans’ punter, was expected to start law school at Stanford.

As a result of the tragedy, Nebraska, which was set to meet the media Monday, did not make the trip to Chicago.
