UCLA junior QB Josh Rosen completed 20-of-34 passes for 214 yards with no touchdowns and three interceptions in a 47-30 loss to Arizona on Saturday.

Simply put, this was an awful game for Rosen. He struggled with passes in every facet -- short, intermediate, long -- and on a day where UCLA (again) couldn't stop the run, his three turnovers doomed the Bruins. This loss not only makes it tougher for UCLA to win the Pac-12 South, it also could cause his draft stock to take a big hit. Rosen will try to get back on track next week against Oregon next week.

ESPN's Mel Kiper writes that the gap between UCLA junior QB Josh Rosen and USC redshirt sophomore QB Sam Darnold has closed on his Big Board.

"It's close," he wrote. "I think you're going to see some teams that like Rosen over Darnold next year." Rosen is 159-of-245 passing (64.9 percent) on the year for an FBS-leading 2,135 yards and a 17/5 TD/INT rate. Kiper's colleague Todd McShay praised Rosen's "huge arm" while noting that he's increased Rosen's draft grade slightly based on his performance this fall. "I have been impressed by Rosen's improved accuracy, especially since he's averaging 49 passing attempts per game," McShay wrote.

UCLA redshirt sophomore TE Caleb Wilson needs foot surgery and will miss the remainder of the season.

Wilson hobbled off the field in the fourth quarter against Colorado. It is a major loss for the Bruins offense, since Wilson and Josh Rosen had really formed a bond on the field. Wilson produced 38 catches for 490 yards and one touchdown before exiting.

UCLA redshirt junior WR Jordan Lasley caught seven passes for 146 yards in a 27-23 victory over Colorado on Saturday.

Lasley (6'1/210) has been on fire as of late, and has gone over 100 yards in three of the four Bruins games. He didn't get in the end zone, but he set up several Bruins scores, including a big 46-yarder. UCLA quarterback Josh Rosen likes to spread the ball around, but it's fair to call Lasley his favorite target based on the numbers he's put up so far.

UCLA junior QB Josh Rosen threw for 372 yards on 28-of-45 passing with a touchdown and an interception in a 27-23 victory over Colorado on Saturday.

Rosen (6'4/218) also ran for seven yards on five carries. Colorado's defense isn't quite at the level of last year, but their well-coached secondary gave Rosen some issues on Saturday. Still, Rosen flashed the immense talent, and made some NFL throws against the Buffaloes. His touchdown was a 12-yard corner route to Austin Roberts to tie the game at 7-7 late in the first. It'd be fair to call this a solid -- but not spectacular -- performance from Rosen. In two weeks, he should be able to shred the Arizona secondary.

Appearing on the Dan Patrick show, former Washington, UCLA and Colorado coach Rick Neuheisel said that he would take UCLA junior QB Josh Rosen over USC redshirt sophomore QB Sam Darnold.

Neuheisel was effusive in praise with both, but when Patrick asked which quarterback he'd rather have, he didn't hesitate to say that he'd take Rosen. "He can make every single throw," Neuheisel said. This is certainly not the industry consensus, but Rosen's numbers are spectacular, and even with some silly mistakes we've seen improvement in his decision making.

UCLA redshirt sophomore TE Caleb Wilson caught 11 passes for 145 yards in a 58-34 loss to Stanford on Saturday.

Wilson (6'4/235) didn't score on Saturday, but he once again put up huge numbers for the Bruins. UCLA QB Josh Rosen clearly has chemistry with the tight end, and he looked to Wilson early and often; especially after UCLA fell behind three scores. This is the second double-digit catch effort for Wilson this year, and there could be more coming, possibly starting on Saturday against Colorado.
Sep 24 - 2:58 AM

UCLA redshirt junior WR Jordan Lasley caught 11 passes for 148 yards and a score in a 58-34 loss to Stanford on Saturday.

Lasley (6'1/210) and the UCLA receivers were able to make plays in the passing game, they just didn't make enough to overcome UCLA's gaping leak of a run defense. It's the second 100 yard game of the year for the junior, and he found the end zone for the third straight game when Josh Rosen connected with him for a 39-yard strike just before the end of the third quarter to make it 37-27 Stanford. Lasley will look to find the end zone again next week when UCLA faces Colorado.
Sep 24 - 2:52 AM

UCLA junior QB Josh Rosen completed 40-of-60 passes for 480 yards with three touchdowns and two picks in a 58-34 loss to Stanford on Saturday.

Rosen (6'4/218) continued to make the plays that have scouts salivating, and the same mistakes that leave them scratching their heads. He again struggled with pressure, and he threw several balls off of his back foot; one of which lead to a late pick that essentially clinched the game. There were good things on Saturday as well as seen in the yardage and touchdown, but this was a mixed effort from the UCLA signal-caller, and mixed might be too nice.
Sep 24 - 2:34 AM

UCLA junior RB Soso Jamabo (undisclosed) is warming up in advance of Saturday's game against Stanford.

Jamabo has missed the last two games with the undisclosed injury concern. He appears as though he'll try to give it a go versus the Cardinal on Saturday, barring a late setback.

Pro Football Focus' Steve Palazzolo compares UCLA junior QB Josh Rosen to former FSU QB Jameis Winston.

"From the early high expectations to a risk/reward playing style to the pure numbers that put both players in similar light," Palazzolo writes, "Rosen and Winston have a lot in common." In terms of the raw numbers, the analyst ticks off several marks that are remarkably similar from Winston's final collegiate season in 2014 and Rosen's work during the current campaign, including adjusted completion percentage (72.6% for Winston, 71.6% for Rosen), passer rating under pressure (69.5 for Rosen, 66.6 for Winston) and adjusted completion percentage on passes of 20-plus yards (39.4% for Rosen, 39.3% for Winston). Winston spun all this fine work into the No. 1 overall pick in the draft, something that Rosen is very much in play for come the spring.

Ucla senior RB Nate Starks (MCL) is likely to miss extended time.

Starks suffered the injury in the first half of the loss to Memphis on Saturday. For the season, he's carried the ball 10 times for 46 yards, with four catches going for 74 yards.
Sep 18 - 8:21 PM

UCLA junior QB Josh Rosen completed 34-of-56 passes for 463 yards, four touchdowns and two interceptions in Saturday's 48-45 loss to Memphis.

The 6-foot-4, 218-pound Rosen looked outstanding except for a few embarrassing mistakes, the biggest being Tim Hart's 60-yard interception return for a touchdown in the third quarter. It's hard to criticize Rosen for a few mistakes when he plays behind a poor offensive line with no semblance of a rushing attack to help out. Against good teams, he's asked to win the game by himself. Pulling that kind of weight -- when the defense knows your offensive strategy -- is going to lead to errors every now and again. At this time, Rosen is a top-five overall NFL prospect. He remains in the running to be the No. 1 pick in the spring.
Sep 16 - 4:13 PM

UCLA freshman DE Jaelan Phillips was forced out of Saturday's game against Memphis due to an apparent ankle injury.

Phillips had his ankle rolled up by a Memphis tight end near the end of the third quarter. He was in obvious pain in the field and was able to put little weight on the leg as he was being helped off the field. It is unlikely that he will return to the contest. We'll pass along updates as to his health and status as they become available.
Sep 16 - 3:06 PM

UCLA senior LB Kenny Young (head) didn't play in Saturday's game against Memphis.

Young suffered a head injury last week against Hawaii. Last year, Young started all 12 games and finished second on the team with 90 tackles. He added 8.5 tackles for loss, three fumble recoveries and a pick.
