UCLA roars back from 34 points down to beat Texas A&M

Posted September 04, 2017

He passed for 491 yards and four touchdowns to erase a 44-10, third-quarter deficit.

A comeback like that deserved a dramatic finish, and the Bruins set up the final touchdown with a fourth-down conversion and fake spike. Rosen completed a pass to Darren Andrews for a touchdown just a couple minutes into the quarter. The Spartans did so on October 21, 2006 against Northwestern, according to ESPN Stats & Info. But A&M slashed right through the UCLA defense, moving 99 yards - all but four of them on the ground - in seven plays, the largest of which was a 72-yard Williams run. JJ Molson kicked the winning extra point. Texas A&M dominated both sides of the ball, especially up front.

Braden Mann also had a 43-yard field goal with 4:41 remaining tipped by defensive back Adarius Pickett. The Ducks led the Golden Bears 30-0, but Cal rallied back and went ahead on a 26-yard touchdown pass from Dave Barr to Iheanyi Uwaezuoke with 1:17 to play, followed by a two-point conversion for the win.

Texas A&M has completely manhandled UCLA at the line of scrimmage, rushing 36 times for 286 yards and five touchdowns as a team.

The last time Josh Rosen seized the college football world's attention with his arm was two years ago.

For the first time since 2013, A&M dropped one of its first five games of the season. Andrews finished with 142 receiving yards and the two scores, while Caleb Wilson led the team with 208 receiving yards. For Texas A&M, however, there are many levels of angst here.

"We're not making excuses for anything", A&M coach Kevin Sumlin said. Rosen coolly and efficiently marched UCLA down the field despite looking up at a yawning deficit, rifling darts through holes in coverage as the Aggies continually failed to get stops.

But the play that really stood out was the final touchdown of the game. It was his first appearance since sustaining a shoulder injury that cost him the second half of the 2016 season. Next up for UCLA is a Saturday clash with Hawaii.
