Rosen choked as usual

By: gotroy22

Saturday, the Bruins came away with points only three times out of their five visits inside the 20-yard line.

“We did exactly what we wanted to do,” Rosen said. “Just for some reason, we got inside the 15-yard line and spazzed out.”

UCLA outgained the Trojans 501-417. The Bruins gave up a season-low for rushing yards. Rosen was 32-for-52 for 421 yards and three touchdowns, but two red zone turnovers haunted the junior who has now lost both of his career starts against USC.

Rosen turned the ball over on the 17-yard line after getting sacked and stripped by defensive tackle Malik Dorton with UCLA driving at the end of the first half to tie the game. On UCLA’s first drive of the third quarter, the Rosen turned it over at the 14-yard line as safety Marvell Tell jumped the pass in the end zone. The quarterback thought it was a touchdown when he threw it. He said he never saw Tell.


“We had opportunities throughout the game and we squandered them,” offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch said. “We squandered them.”
