LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — While Nebraska honored punter Sam Foltz who died in a car crash this summer, someone broke into his brother's home and car.

Greeley County Sheriff David Weeks says the burglary happened sometime after the Foltz family left home around noon to attend Saturday's game in Lincoln and before they returned around 3 a.m. Sunday.

The thieves took items worth roughly $1,400, including a television and tools, from Jordan Foltz's home and vehicle in the Greeley, Nebraska, area.

Sam Foltz, who would have been a senior at Nebraska this fall, died in a car crash in Wisconsin in July along with former Michigan State punter Mike Sadler.

Foltz's parents presented a scholarship in his name and two of his nephews helped lead the team out before Saturday's game against Fresno State.
