University of Nebraska punter Sam Foltz and former Michigan State University punter Mike Sadler were killed in an automobile gate-crash in Merton, Wis ., belatedly Saturday night.

Nebraska announced Foltz’s passing, and the Lincoln Journal Star is reporting that Sadler was driving the car and was killed in the crash. Both were declared dead on the panorama. LSU kicker Colby Delahoussaye was in the back seat and was disabled but was treated for scorches on his legs and with stitches and has been released from a local infirmary, according to The Advocate of Baton Rouge, La.

The actors apparently were attending a weekend punting and knocking clique in Wales, Wis. Their vehicle misplaced dominance on a soaked road, according to police.
