You all saw it, you all know what happened, and now we talk about how UCLA came back from 34 points down against Texas A&M and win 45-44. It was an insane spectacle. It was the biggest  comeback in UCLA history and the second biggest in NCAA history.

We discuss what happened at the beginning of the game to put UCLA in such a deficit. We break down what didn’t work and what did. We also take a look  at the moments, which were several, that helped the Bruins’ comeback.

And how about that Josh Rosen? He was not so great in the first half, but legendary in the second. He threw for 491 yards and four touchdowns, 292 of those yards came in the 4th quarter alone.

This is an epic victory that’s going to stay with Bruin fans for quite a while, but UCLA has not been crowned champion quite yet. It has only been one game and with that we look at the next contest which comes against Hawaii.

The Rainbow Warriors are showing some flight early in the season. Do they have what it takes to scrambled UCLA’s circuits and get a few points on the board? Will the Bruins have learned their lesson and play a full game? Find out now!
