The announcement comes just days after Oregon honored Foltz by laying flowers on the 27-yard line prior to warmups. Foltz wore No. 27 for the Huskers.

Foltz was killed in a car crash prior to the season when he was returning home from a kicking camp in Wisconsin. Former Michigan State punter Mike Sadler also was killed and LSU kicker Colby Delahoussaye was injured in the accident.
