Both UCLA and Nebraska players will honor walk-on wide receiver Nick Pasquale when the teams meet in memorial Stadium in Lincoln this weekend.
The Bruins will wear a No. 36 patch on their jerseys and the Huskers will wear a No. 36 decal on their helmets to honor the UCLA redshirt freshman that was killed after being hit by a car early Sunday morning.
Nebraska wide receiver Kenny Bell tweeted out his condolences to UCLA and family on behalf of the Huskers.
RIP Nicholas Pasquale, to UCLA players, fans and family alike, our hearts and prayers go out to you in the coming weeks.

It's a great gesture by Nebraska to honor Pasquale at their home stadium.
UCLA coach Jim Mora used two press conferences to express his condolences for Pasquale and talk about the mindset of his team. There’s no doubt Saturday’s game will be an emotional one as the Bruins cope with this sudden loss.
