The Iowa Hawkeyes football team will pay tribute to Tyler Sash this weekend by wearing his number on their helmets for Saturday's game.

The team will remove one of the Tiger Hawk logos from the side of the helmet and replace it with the number 9, worn by Sash when he played for the Hawkeyes in 2008-2010.

Sash died unexpectedly at the age of 27 earlier this week. 

The tribute was announced on the Iowa Hawkeyes Twitter page today.
