Found September 26, 2013 on College Spun:
This past weekend, Cincinnati Bearcats players and fans got some terrible news – offensive lineman Ben Flick was killed in an automobile accident late Saturday night in Hanover Township, Ohio. Two of his teammates – Javon Barr and Mark Harrison – were also injured in the crash.  This Saturday, Western Michigan, a school that offered Flick back in 2012, will honor the Bearcats program by wearing Cincinnati’s logo on its helmets when it plays Kent State. Cincinnati President Santa J. Ono tweeted out a photo: Western Michigan FB will wear the University of Cincinnati athletic logo on helmets in honor of Ben Flick.
