Bruins upset by Memphis Tigers

17 September, 2017, 02:05 | Author: Joan Malone
  • No. 25 UCLA fell behind Memphis 27-24 in the first half Saturday thanks partially to a pair of screen passes that the Tigers' backs took for touchdowns

The Bruins earned a 45-44 victory in one of the wildest college football games in recent memory thanks to a 35-0 run that would seem unrealistic even on the basketball court. The receiving end was taken care off by Theo Howard who made game-high 110 yards receiving on seven catches with a score. The defense isn't in the clear, either, which allowed six passing touchdowns to Memphis quarterback Riley Ferguson and kept them in the game from start to finish.

"The defense just rose to the challenge", Norvell said.

He's one of the top quarterback prospects for the 2018 NFL Draft and is the face of the Bruins.

Ferguson completed 23 of 38 passes for 398 yards and six touchdowns with one interception. To that point, Rosen certainly hadn't been perfect-UCLA had ended its first two drives with punts and took a quarter to hit its stride-but he was the Bruins' best player by far, and suddenly an interception seemed to negate everything.

On Thursday when he met with reporters in the Falcons' locker room, Jones said he wasn't concerned about his stats. The Packers have actually faced three reigning MVPs before in the McCarthy era, but they were all running backs.


UCLA has given up an average of 331.5 rushing yards over its first two games this season and could be without several defensive starters against the Tigers, who are coming off a 319-yard performance on the ground against Louisiana-Monroe. "I just made some stupid mistakes", Rosen said. Ferguson, the senior that replaced Paxton Lynch under center for the Tigers a year ago, was impressive in the win, completing more than 60% of his passes. It is hard to imagine they will not drop out in next week's poll after losing to an unranked team.

Rosen was leading the Bruins (2-1) down the field for a potential go-ahead score in the fourth quarter when he rushed a pass to avoid an unblocked, blitzing defender. "I saw him at halftime, and got to go in and talk to him". "But our guys continued to push and continued to battle".

After the first play of the game, it looked like Memphis might blow their game against UCLA wide open. The American Athletic Conference announced Thursday that the Tigers-Knights game is rescheduled for September 30.
