Western Michigan to honor Sadler vs. Michigan State
The Broncos will wear a "3" on their helmets to honor former MSU punter Mike Sadler when they face the Spartans on Saturday. Earlier this year, former WMU QB Zach Terrell became the first recipient of the Michigan chapter of the National Football Foundation's Michael Sadler award, presented to the top Division I scholar-athlete. The award, formerly named after College Football Hall of Famer John Pingel, was renamed in Sadler's honor following his death in 2016. (@WMU_Football/Twitter)
