Huskers open season much differently than last year

The last time Fresno State visited Lincoln five years ago, the Huskers were yet to play a Big Ten Conference football game, Taylor Martinez was a sophomore, Ameer Abdulah was a freshman, and Rex Burkhead was, well, Rex Burkhead.
Fast forward to this past Saturday night in Lincoln where things had a much different feel, a much different vibe, as Husker Nation turned out not only to witness Nebraska’s opening game of the 2016 season, but to also pay tribute to one of their own, Sam Foltz.
The Foltz family was on the field prior to kickoff to honor junior placekicker Drew Brown with the first annual Sam Foltz Memorial Scholarship. Sam’s nephews, along with Brown, led the tunnel walk to one of the noisiest ovations ever.
But the most heart-wrenching moment came to start the game when the Huskers went a quick three and out, lining up on fourth down without a punter as the crowd simply went wild.
