Draft Scout Josh Rosen News
11/12/17 - Quarterback Josh Rosen passed for a touchdown and rushed for another, UCLA rolled up 573 yards of offense, and the Bruins outlasted Arizona State in a shootout Saturday at the Rose Bowl, winning 44-37 to keep their bowl-game aspirations alive. Rosen's return to the lineup for UCLA (5-5, 3-4 Pac-12 Conference) after missing one game due to a concussion ignited the Bruins offensively. He passed for 381 yards, spreading receptions among 10 pass-catchers -- including wide receiver Jordan Lasley, who tallied 162 yards and a touchdown in his return from suspension -- as UCLA remained undefeated at home in the Rose Bowl.
The UCLA rushing game also came to life with Rosen back behind center, with running back Bolu Olorunfunmi's 79 yards pacing the Bruins to 194 in a by-committee effort. With the run game working and the Bruins defense getting stops when it mattered most, UCLA needs a win over either USC or Cal in the next two weeks to gain bowl eligibility. Trailing by 10 points late, Arizona State (5-5, 4-3) had an opportunity when wide receiver N'Keal Harry caught a 39-yard pass over two defenders on fourth down. The ensuing red-zone chance only produced three points, and Arizona State could not recover the onside kick attempt. - The Sports Xchange
11/07/17 - UCLA quarterback Josh Rosen is on track to play against Arizona State on Saturday after missing last week's loss at Utah with a concussion. Rosen returned to practice Tuesday morning, and offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch said the junior will be back in the starting lineup provided he clears concussion protocol. "It was definitely encouraging," Fisch said. "He looked good, he looked good. He practiced good. It's been tough. It's been really six quarters without him and that's always difficult." Rosen missed most of the second half in a 44-23 loss at No. 9 Washington and did not travel with the Bruins for their 48-17 loss at Utah on Friday night.
Backup quarterbacks Devon Modster and Matt Lynch are a combined 16 of 23 for 149 yards passing with three touchdowns since Rosen got injured. Rosen is averaging 339.1 yards passing per game, which ranks sixth among FBS quarterbacks, and has thrown 20 touchdowns against eight interceptions. Whoever plays quarterback for UCLA (4-5, 2-4 Pac-12) will be without his top wide receiver as Darren Andrews suffered a torn ACL at Utah. Andrews, a redshirt senior, had 60 receptions for 773 yards and 10 touchdown catches to lead the team in all three categories. - AP College Football
11/03/17 - UCLA quarterback Josh Rosen missed the Bruins' game Friday night at Utah because of a concussion. The junior starter did not make the trip after sustaining the concussion last week against No. 12 Washington. Redshirt freshman Devon Modster will make his first career start. Rosen's 339.1 passing yards per game ranks No. 4 in the nation and he's expected to be a high first-round draft pick if he decides to leave after the season. He's No. 8 in the nation in total offense with 333.9 yards per game. Modster has thrown for 82 yards and a touchdown with a 53.3 completion percentage in two games. He signed with UCLA as a four-star prospect according to 247Sports and was the No. 13 pro-style quarterback in the 2016 class. - AP College Football
10/21/17 - Josh Rosen threw for 266 yards and two touchdowns and the much-maligned UCLA defense held Oregon offense scoreless in the second half as the Bruins defeated the Ducks 31-14 on Saturday at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, Calif. With a challenging conference schedule that awaits, the Bruins (4-3, 2-2 Pac-12) needed a win badly to keep their hopes of being bowl-eligible, which evaded them last season. Rosen, who was picked off three times and sacked five times in a 47-30 loss to Arizona last week, went 21 of 36 and did not throw an interception. UCLA gave up 457 yards on the ground in a loss to Arizona last week. Heading into Saturday's game, only Tulsa had a worse run defense in FBS competition. Except for a couple hiccups, the Bruins' defense was stellar. The Ducks did run for 257 yards on 59 carries with Royce Freeman doing most of the damage. Freeman ran for 160 yards and in doing so became the school's all-time rushing leader with 5,103 yards, passing LaMichael James. He also became the 22nd player to rush for 5,000 yards. But Freeman's heroics were not enough to keep Oregon (4-3, 1-4) from losing its third straight game. - The Sports Xchange
10/01/17 - Josh Rosen threw for 372 yards and one touchdown and a much-maligned UCLA defense came up with a big stop when it needed it most as the Bruins defeated Colorado 27-23 on Saturday night at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, Calif. UCLA (3-2, 1-1 Pac-12) came into the game as the No. 1 pass offense in the nation averaging almost 453 yards per game, while the Buffaloes (3-2, 0-2 Pac-12) came in ranked in the top three in the Pac-12 in passing defense. When it came down to crunch time, it was the Bruins' offense that won the battle and clinched the game as UCLA ended a two-game skid after losing to Memphis and Stanford.
With UCLA nursing a 24-20 lead, the defense stopped a Colorado drive deep in Bruins' territory. Colorado had to settle for a James Stefanou 33-yard field goal to close the deficit to 24-23 with 6:46 remaining. The Bruins started their final crucial drive from their own 8-yard line. After Rosen was sacked for a 1-yard loss, he fired a strike from the shadows of his own goal line to Darren Andrews for an 18-yard gain, giving the Bruins some breathing room. From there, Rosen and the Bruins drove to Buffaloes' 14-yard line. Kicker JJ Molson made good on a 31-yard attempt with 26 seconds left to complete the 15-play, 79-yard drive. - The Sports Xchange
