PHOTO: Cincinnati to wear helmet decal to honor late Ben Flick

By Tom Fornelli | Staff Writer

It was nearly two weeks ago that Cincinnati offensive lineman Ben Flick died in a car accident, and on Saturday the Bearcats will take the field for the first time since the accident.

And they'll be doing so with a new decal on their helmets to honor their late teammate. Coach Tommy Tuberville tweeted a photo of the decal on Wednesday.

The car accident that claimed Flick's life also claimed the life of Flick's friend Sean VanDyne. Cincinnati players Mark Barr and Javon Harrison were also hospitalised following the accident.
