The quarterback never stood a chance on this play.

Northwestern is taking on Rutgers Saturday, and it has been all Wildcats early on. The defense has kept the Scarlet Knights in check, and DL Joe Gaziano came up with a massive hit and sack in the first quarter.

A break down in the blocking by Rutgers opened a clear path for Gaziano straight to QB Artur Sitkowski in the backfield. There was nothing Sitkowski could do to avoid it, and Gaziano leveled him with a big sack.
