Rutgers quarterback Artur Sitkowski remained in the game despite the punch from center Mike Maietti.
Rutgers celebrated a touchdown against Boston College on Saturday as only the Scarlet Knights could as center Mike Maietti punched quarterback Artur Sitkowski in the face.
Sitkowski completed a 74-yard touchdown pass to wideout Raheem Blackshear to tie the game 7-7 in the first quarter. The sophomore QB turned to celebrate with his offensive lineman but was met only by Maietti's fist. Just a typical afternoon in Piscataway.
The Scarlet Knights didn't reach the end zone again in the first half after Maietti's punch. Boston College entered halftime with a 17-13 lead before winning 30-14.
Rutgers is now 1–2 in 2019 before a matchup at Michigan on Sept. 28.
