PITTSBURGH (AP) -Pitt quarterback Bill Stull was taken off the field on a stretcher after striking his neck against teammate LeSean McCoy's back while being hurried on a pass play during the third quarter Saturday against Rutgers.
Rutgers defensive back David Rowe was pressuring Stull as the quarterback threw an incomplete pass intended for Cedric McGee on a third-and-12 play from the Pitt 27. Stull's neck snapped backward after he released the ball and struck McCoy, who was already on the turf.
Stull lay motionless for nearly 10 minutes as players from both teams knelt in front of their benches, their heads down.
The junior, who helped lead Pitt to a 5-1 start, drew a loud cheer from the crowd of 51,161 when, despite being strapped to the stretcher, he raised his left arm and gave a thumbs-up sign while being taken off the field.
Stull was 16-of-22 for 279 yards before getting hurt, even as the No. 17 Panthers fell behind 41-31.
