High emotions are expected at UB Stadium where the Bulls will not only kickoff a new football season, but will also remember a former teammate.

The Bulls are set to honor defensive end Solomon Jackson who passed away suddenly after collapsing during an off-season team workout earlier in the year. 

Jackson's number 41 has been painted on the field as a tribute. The team is also expected to observe a moment of silence before the season opener against visiting Albany.
