Nebraska football's official twitter account, @Huskers, has announced that the team will wear a No. 36 decal on its helmet for Saturday's game against UCLA. The decal is in honor of UCLA redshirt freshman wide receiver Nick Pasquale, who was struck by a car and killed this past weekend in his hometown of San Clemente, Calif. Pasquale was 20 years-old.

"Bigger than any football game," is the message associated with the tweet, which came from Nebraska head coach Bo Pelini.

UCLA will wear commemorative ?36? patches on their jerseys and decals on their helmets. There will be a moment of silence to honor Pasquale before kickoff.

UCLA head coach Jim Mora Jr. addressed Pasquale's death and the impact it has had on the team in a press conference this past Monday.
