BYU honors late Spartans Mylan Hicks, Mike Sadler at Spartan Stadium

The tributes to late Big Ten football players continue to roll in with every passing week.

What makes them even better is that non-Big Ten teams are getting in on the act, too.

The non-Big Ten tributes all started with Fresno State’s classy reaction and declining of a delay of game when Nebraska lined up without a punter on its first fourth down of the season to honor Sam Foltz, the reigning Big Ten Punter of the Year who died in a car accident in late July.

A couple weeks later, Oregon placed flowers at the 27-yard line at Memorial Stadium to honor the Nebraska punter, who wore No. 27.

On Saturday in East Lansing, BYU decorated the 3- and 6-yard lines during pregame warmups to honor late ex-Michigan State players Mike Sadler, who died in the car accident with Foltz, and Mylan Hicks, who was killed late last week.
