UCLA Football: Josh Rosen Throws For Over 300 Yards For The Fourth Time This Season


Josh Rosen, UCLA Football freshman quarterback extraordinaire, has thrown for over 300 yards for the fourth time this season with a 333-yard performance against Oregon State in a 41-0 Bruin victory.

Who would have known UCLA Football freshman quarterback Josh Rosen would have this much success in his first season? Okay, a lot of people, but to actually pinpoint what it is he would have accomplished would have been, at best, just a wild guess.

Well now we know that he is a bona fide Division I quarterback, complete with broken records and broken hearts.

It was seven games in against Cal when the “Chosen One” broke both the record for completions in a game by a UCLA quarterback (34) and most passing yards by a true freshman quarterback in a season (1,967).

Rosen now has another milestone under his belt as he has now thrown for over 300 yards for the fourth time this season. That is big time.

Rosen started the season off with a bang as he put up 350 yards in his freshman debut against Virginia.  In the next four games, he would only manage to get up to 284 yards, but he came alive, sort of, against Stanford for 325 yards. Though most of those were junk yards in the second half (as UCLA was dismantled by Stanford 56-35), he followed that effort up with 399 yards against Cal.

Today, against Oregon State, Rosen butchered the Beaver defense for 333 yards as he was assisted by 12 different receivers. Thomas Duarte benefitted the most from Rosen as he had 118 yards on six catches with 2 touchdowns.

On the season, Rosen is averaging 284.8 ypg. Per game, people!

And he is just a freshman. Imagine what is to come from Rosen in the next two years. If it is better than this (and with a defense that is not completely shattered by the injury bug), the Bruins could be in good position to do some damage on a national level. You heard it here first!
