Former Michigan State University punter Mike Sadler was among those killed in a car accident overnight in Wisconsin, according to the Lincoln Journal Star.

According to the paper, senior Nebraska punter Sam Foltz was also killed in the crash.

Sadler joined Brendan Quinn for an episode of the Suburban Ford 7 Sports Cave in September.
