Rutgers is only two games away from having its miserable 2018 season mercifully ended, but that is still plenty of time for the Scarlet Knights to create more viral blunders.

Today, it was the worst interception of the 2018 college football season, courtesy of freshman quarterback Art Sitkowski, who had thrown 16 entering today. Sitkowski has tossed two to Penn State this afternoon, and his second one was a doozy.

On 1st-and-24, Rutgers tried to run a halfback screen play, but Penn State had it sniffed out perfectly, most likely because it is one of only about four plays Rutgers attempts to run on a weekly basis. Sitkowski had nowhere to go with the ball.

He tried to throw it away, but ended up doing whatever this is instead.

Penn State's Garrett Taylor will never have an easier interception in his life. That was unreal.

Sitkowski's decision to throw it away was smart, but you have to really throw it away there. Just lobbing it up does nothing.

Sadly, Rutgers' defense has come to play so far today. They've held Trace McSorley and the Nittany Lion passing offense in check and have limited running back Miles Sanders to 44 yards on the ground.

However, the Scarlet Knights' offense is so inept, it doesn't matter. Sitkowski was benched for senior Gio Rescigno, but we'll see if it makes any difference.
