Quinn Evans fills in for injured freshman Nick VanHoose

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
Starting cornerback Nick VanHoose injured his lower back on the second play of the game and did not return. 

"Nick is one of our very young, talented guys," Northwestern coach Pat Fitzgerald said. "Hopefully, he'll be back sooner rather than later."

Senior Quinn Evans, who transferred to Northwestern to attend grad school after graduating from Stanford, replaced VanHoose and had five tackles.

It's quite a luxury to be able to use a senior to backup a freshman.

"Quinn really stepped up," Fitzgerald said. "That's probably the most football Quinn Evans has played in three or four years. I'm a big fan of the NCAA rule on graduate transfers."
