Wisconsin-Michigan got ugly real fast on Saturday. The Badgers absolutely humiliated the Wolverines in a 35-14 blowout — it could've been even worse, too.

In the process of the blowout, Michigan and Jim Harbaugh opted for a quarterback change in the first half. Dylan McCaffrey, younger brother of Carolina Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey, replaced the struggling Shea Patterson.

In the second half, though, McCaffrey absorbed a brutal hit on a 5-yard run — brutal's putting it lightly. The defender lowered his shoulder and hit McCaffrey in the head/neck area.

The defender who hit McCaffrey — Reggie Pearson — took to Twitter to send a message to the Michigan QB.

Certainly a classy move by the Wisconsin safety. Especially considering Pearson was ejected for the hit. Sometimes, some things just mean more than football.

McCaffrey reportedly suffered a concussion because of the hit. It is currently unclear if the backup QB will be available for next week's game.

The Wolverines certainly need help at the quarterback position moving forward. Shea Patterson simply isn't playing well, consistently missing open receivers. Many expect McCaffrey to be a big improvement and help the offense.

The four-star high school prospect came to Michigan as apart of the 2017 class.

Michigan is set to host Rutgers in Ann Arbor next Saturday.
