Perkins Rescues UCLA In One-Point Win

Arizona passed for just 97 yards against the Bruins’ patched defense and trailed 42-14 at the half, while UCLA freshman Josh Rosen completed 19 of 28 passes for 284 yards and a pair of touchdowns.


It started Week 3 with USC’s loss at home to Stanford, a fitting prelude for the madness to unfold on Week 4’s Blowout Saturday. They were cheering for the Wildcats, and then it was like we were cheering for both teams.

Quickly, powerfully, they responded with their own two-minute touchdown drive.

DUCKS DROP OUT: Oregon is out of The Associated Press Top 25 poll for the first time since 2009, snapping its streak of consecutive appearances at 98. The freshman quarterback found Thomas Duarte for a 35-yard touchdown to tie the game up.

The Bruins never gave it back. His 2015 season, though, got off to a rough start when he suffered a knee injury in the season-opener against the UTSA Roadrunners. The Wildcats’ coach said he won’t do anything extra to get in Rosen’s head Saturday.

In last week’s matchup, UCLA dominated Arizona 56-30. It wasn’t one thing. “We run the ball a lot more”. Arizona State’s passing defense, only allowing 48.6% of passes to be completed, has a good chance of shutting down its competitor’s aerial attack. He has what it takes to be a top quarterback, but is he simply not there yet? At halftime, Rodriguez told ABC Sports that Solomon likely wouldn’t return. If he doesn’t play, expect Stanford to unleash unhealthy doses of RB Christian McCaffrey.

I wondered about that the entire week before the game.

But along with everything else he’s picked up in the last few weeks, Rosen has learned this much: Things can look like very different from one week to the next. “So I think for the moment, there’s no discussions ongoing”. Arizona is 15/18 scoring in the red zone with 15 touchdowns and opponents are 9/10 with 5 touchdowns. Utah recently went 1-2 at a tournament at Louisville, getting swept by the host Cardinals and Ohio before posting a five-set win against Seton Hall.

Randall’s touchdown dash infused some energy into the 56,004 fans at Arizona Stadium, but it didn’t seem to bother Rosen. After the Myles Jack injury I had the score at 35-31. – Paul Perkins ran 24 times for 85 yards and a score.

In short, the Bruins’ offense took advantage of an unprepared Arizona defense. The Wildcats weren’t shut out; they scored 30 points on the night that was more than Oregon (20), and Arizona State (14) scored on the night. The Wildcats reached UCLA’s 3 on the next drive, but went backward and settled for Casey Skowron’s 44-field goal.

“There wasn’t anything they did that confused us”, Young said. “We will come back tomorrow and look at the film and correct everything”. The junior finished with seven tackles and was active for all four quarters.

“There were some unforced errors certainly”, Rodriguez said. Running back Christian McCaffrey had a career day on the ground, compensating for a banged up Kevin Hogan, who played the whole game on a sprained ankle.

The Arizona State Sun Devils are coming off of an embarrassing loss at home to USC this past weekend and look to bounce back on the road.
