Wake Forest will honor Arnold Palmer during Saturday's home football game against Syracuse University and across all athletic programs.

"All competitive athletic fields ... will have Palmer's distinctive multi-color umbrella logo on or near the playing surface," Wake Forest athletic communications said in a statement. "All athletic teams will sport a logo honoring Palmer on all jerseys. The Demon Deacon football team will have a helmet sticker honoring Palmer. The Wake Forest football team will carry a flag bearing the umbrella logo when it takes the field for all remaining football games."

Palmer, who died Sept. 25, attended Wake Forest University and starred on the golf team. The school's only on-campus statue is of Palmer and the Arnold Palmer Golf Complex and Arnold Palmer dormitory are named after him. Click on the above video for more on Palmer's amateur and collegiate career.
