UCLA honors lost freshman wide receiver Nick Pasquale at Rose Bowl

In its first home game since the death of redshirt freshman wide receiver Nick Pasquale, UCLA held a moment of silence in his memory before Saturday's game against New Mexico State.

Plus, as fans entered the stadium, 40,000  received UCLA blue towels to wave with Pasquale's No. 36 in the middle. Pasquale was killed Sept. 8 when he was hit by a car while walking across the street.

The school is presenting Pasquale's parents with a framed jersey after the first quarter, and his jersey will be painted on the field for the remainder of the season. UCLA head coach Jim Mora encouraged everyone who sees his family to give them a hug.
