Found September 14, 2013 on College Spun:
PLAYERS: Nick Pasquale
TEAMS: UCLA Bruins
Earlier this week, we learned that Nebraska’s football team would be honoring Nick Pasquale,  a walk-on wide receiver from UCLA who was tragically killed this past weekend, by wearing his number, 36, on its helmets. Today, we learned that the Cornhuskers’ student section has also planned a tribute to Pasquale. The students will be releasing blue and gold balloons into the air to honor Pasquale and the Bruins – a ver classy move. Big Ten Network’s Brent Yarina snapped a pic. #Huskers are classy. Students have blue and yellow balloons today to honor the UCLA player who was recently killed. — Brent Yarina (@BTNBrentYarina) September 14, 2013 PHOTO: #Huskers fans with No. 36 banner and blue and yellow balloons. pic.twitter.com/sGBKFFamnt — Brent Yarina (@BTNBrentYarina) September 14, 2013 It’s great to see students from one university supporting another during a tragic time. Nice work all around here.
