Draft Scout Josh Rosen News
09/17/17 - UCLA and Josh Rosen came in with the reputation and the ranking. The Memphis Tigers think it is time they got some respect and notoriety. Rosen was unable to put together a fourth-quarter comeback like he did in the opener against Texas A&M, and Memphis beat the No. 25 Bruins 48-45. The nationally televised game showcased a Tigers program that is 2-0 and has beaten a ranked team in each of the last three seasons. Riley Ferguson threw for 398 yards and six touchdowns, and Jacobi Francis broke up a late fourth-down pass to lead Memphis. Francis' breakup with 56 seconds left sent the Tigers faithful into a celebration. Rosen, considered one of the top quarterbacks in the country, was 34 of 56 for 463 yards and four touchdowns for the Bruins (2-1). But there also were two key interceptions. - AP College Football

09/10/17 - UCLA's offense picked up where it left off last week and practically was unstoppable on Saturday. After the Bruins overcame a 34-point deficit in their opener on Sunday, quarterback Josh Rosen completed 22 of 25 pass attempts for 329 yards and five touchdowns to lead UCLA to 56-23 win over Hawaii on Saturday at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, Calif. In two games this season, Rosen has thrown for 820 yards and nine touchdowns. He was 12 of 14 in the first half as the Bruins (2-0) built a 35-7 advantage. Rosen led UCLA on a 99-yard scoring drive in only seven plays on its first possession. On a play-action pass, Rosen threw a dart and found Darren Andrews open from 25 yards out and UCLA was off and running. Hawaii drove 56 yards in eight plays setting up a field-goal attempt by Ryan Meskell. Meskell missed and the Bruins took over on Rainbow Warriors' 32-yard line. Rosen made the Rainbow Warriors pay as he guided the Bruins 68 yards in seven plays and a 26-yard touchdown strike to Theo Howard for a 14-0 lead. - The Sports Xchange
09/08/17 - Josh Rosen's spectacular comeback for UCLA on Sunday vaulted him up the (early) list of the Pac-12's Heisman hopefuls. Rosen threw for 292 yards and four touchdowns in the fourth quarter alone as the Bruins rebounded from a 44-10 deficit for a 45-44 victory over Texas A&M at the Rose Bowl. Rosen faked a spike and threw a 10-yard touchdown pass to Jordan Lasley with 43 seconds left for the win. It was the second-biggest comeback in FBS history, surpassed only by Michigan State's rally past Northwestern from a 35-point deficit in 2006. Rosen's performance drew raves, including from Utah coach Kyle Whittingham.
"He's a unique quarterback, I don't think there's any doubt about that, and he proved that on Sunday," Whittingham said. "Just the way he and his entire team handled adversity - that's just what you're looking for when you talk to your team about adversity. That was the epitome of it. He did a great job. Rosen earned Pac-12 Player of the Week honors for the effort. He finished the game with 491 yards passing and those four final quarter touchdowns. Yes, it's super early, but Rosen's big day cemented his status as one of the league's possible Heisman candidates, along with fellow quarterbacks Sam Darnold of USC and Jake Browning of Washington. There were questions about how Rosen might rebound from last season when he was injured. - AP College Football
09/05/17 - A light rain fell on the Rose Bowl in muggy, 90-degree evening heat during the miserable first 40 minutes of UCLA's season opener. Thousands of dampened fans had already hit the exits with their Bruins trailing by 34 points. They missed nothing less than the greatest comeback in UCLA history and a defining moment in Josh Rosen's three-year quest to reach his enormous potential. Down 44-10 late in the third quarter, the Bruins scored touchdowns on five consecutive possessions. Rosen's fake spike and ensuing 10-yard touchdown pass to Jordan Lasley with 34 seconds left capped one of the most flabbergasting victories in college football history, 45-44 over Texas A&M .
"It got real bleak at a certain point," said Rosen, who passed for 292 yards and four TDs in that frantic fourth quarter alone. "Real, real bleak. It's not that we lost hope, because obviously we never did. But we just wanted to play good football. We wanted to be proud. We wanted to give our fans something to be proud of." The ones who stayed were proud, all right: In the first college football game ever played at the Rose Bowl on a Sunday, UCLA (1-0) made the second-biggest comeback in FBS history, surpassed only by Michigan State's rally past Northwestern from a 35-point deficit in 2006. Rosen was at the center of it all, shaking off several early sacks and stalled drives to lead an epic rally in the first game of his junior season. After beginning his career in 2015 as the nation's most prized quarterback prospect, Rosen missed half of UCLA's miserable 2016 season with an injury and became better known for his off-field candor than his on-field brilliance. - AP College Football
