The Cincinnati football team will wear a decal on the back of its helmets for Ben Flick for the rest of the season.

Flick was killed in a car crash after Cincinnati's game against Miami, Ohio on September 21 . Cincinnati receivers Mark Barr and Javon Harrison were also passengers in the car. (Since they were redshirting, they traveled to the game separate from the team.) Sean VanDyne, a Miami, Ohio student who was the driver of the car, also died from his injuries suffered in the crash. Both Barr and Harrison were hospitalized after the crash.
Flick and VanDyne had been friends since the second grade.
