UCLA BruinsNebraska Cornhuskers

Nebraska Coach Bo Pelini reached out to UCLA on Monday, a day after Bruins walk-on wide receiver Nick Pasquale was struck by a vehicle and killed.

During his weekly news conference, Pelini said, “I speak for everybody associated with the University of Nebraska in offering our condolences to Nick Pasquale and his family [as well as] UCLA and everyone associated with their program dealing with the tragedy that they are dealing with,” Pelini said.

Pasquale died early Sunday morning.

“That’s a lot bigger than any football game,” Pelini said. “The thoughts and prayers of everyone associated with Nebraska are with Nick, Nick’s family, Coach [Jim] Mora, the football team and everyone associated with UCLA in getting through this because obviously this has got to be a very difficult time for them.”

UCLA plays the Cornhuskers on Saturday in Lincoln, Neb. Nebraska players will wear Pasquale’s No. 36 on their helmets, and there will be  a moment of silence before kickoff.
