Third time not the charm — #3 Josh Rosen throws 3 Interceptions leading to UCLA’s 3rd loss of the season

UCLA traveled to Arizona this weekend, and as a 2-point favorite, against a team that usually beat, they couldn’t get it done, losing 47-30, falling to 3-3 on the season.  Usually consistent Josh Rosen, who always throws for over 300 yards, managed only 219, and zero TD’s.  And it was his 3 INT’s that really killed him — 2 in the Red Zone, plus another one that resulted in a Pick 6.  He also got sacked 5 times.

The Bruin Defense was equally to blame, giving up 457 rushing yards, including 234 to the Quarterback.  About the only bright spot for UCLA was a rare 100-yard rushing effort:  Bolu Olorunfunmi gained 102 yards on only 10 carries including 2 TD’s.

Sorry for this truncated summary, and for no photos.  I am currently working on two (Internet) TV shows, and will be super-busy (probably) for the next 5 weeks.  I will most likely miss the next two home games as well.  I haven’t missed a home game in 49 years.  So it’s sad that the streak is coming to an end (unless I get fired or the shooting schedule changes radically), but it’s good to be working.  So carry on the torch for me until I return to root the Bruins on… to some more mediocrity?

    The program is imploding for what feels like the umpteenth time. With everything that UCLA has to offer, it is utterly pathetic. Bruin Football: always finding a way to do less with more.

    Congrats on your new gigs T-H. Life moves on and things change. We’ll be there Saturday more to tailgate, see friends, and enjoy the spirit squad and the band.
