Senior quarterback Trevor Siemian is out for the season with an anterior cruciate ligament injury, coach Pat Fitzgerald announced at his news conference Monday.
Siemian exited Saturday’s game against Purdue after being stuffed on a fourth-down quarterback sneak.
Junior Zack Oliver replaced Siemian and will start Saturday against Illinois, with redshirt freshman Matt Alviti playing periodically as well.
Siemian ends his Northwestern career with 5,931 yards, 27 touchdowns and 24 interceptions.
