Rafael Gaglianone joins Nebraska's pregame Sam Foltz tribute
Injured Wisconsin kicker Rafael Gaglianone joined Nebraska’s weekly pregame Sam Foltz tribute prior to Saturday night’s game at Camp Randall Stadium.
Gaglianone, a friend of the late Nebraska punter, met the Cornhuskers specialists outside the locker room, before taking the field with his rivals. And, as they have done every week this year, the Nebraska specialists carried Foltz’s No. 27 jersey with them and placed it on the bench.
Speaking of No. 27, Gaglianone switched to it before the season opened to honor the 2015 Big Ten Punter of the Year who died in a single-car crash on July 23 while returning home from a kicking camp in Wisconsin.
