MADISON — As he said he would when speaking with reporters on Tuesday, Wisconsin placekicker Rafael Gaglianone walked out to the field with Nebraska players to honor late Huskers punter Sam Foltz before their Saturday night matchup.
Gaglianone walked with several Huskers over to their sideline as they held Foltz’S No. 27 jersey. Wisconsin specialists, including senior kicker Andrew Endicott and holder Connor Allen, went over to the sideline to talk with and embrace their Huskers counterparts.
According to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel’s Jeff Potrykus, former Badgers punter Drew Meyer was also on the field. It was Meyer’s house Foltz, former Michigan State punter Mike Sadler and current LSU kicker Colby Delahoussaye were driving to when they crashed in late July. Sadler was also killed in the crash. All were attending a Kohl’s Kicking Camp in the Waukesha area.
