Texas A&M QB Nick Starkel in walking boot after loss

The game was bananas.

The Bruins endured a first-half stretch of six consecutive possessions without a first down, four of which ended in punts and two in fumbles.

Showing poise and presence, Rosen completed the comeback by finding receiver Jordan Lasley with 43 seconds left in the game.

Texas A&M quarterback Kellen Mond was stopped short of the first-down marker on a scramble with 20 seconds left to close out the biggest FBS comeback since 2006.

"We were an inch away from losing that game probably 10 times", said Rosen, who threw for the third-most yards in a game in school history. They won't have to wait until November, as they have the last three seasons, to answer questions about whether they can finish games. At that point, Rosen had connected on only nine of his 23 passing attempts for 114 yards, and UCLA trailed 38-10.

And somewhere around there, the madness REALLY started.

The last time Josh Rosen seized the college football world's attention with his arm was two years ago.

Starkel was seen in a walking boot and using crutches after exiting the game. In his first collegiate game, Mond went 3 of 17 for 27 yards. We were asking them to do some things that are very tough to do.

It's arguable that A&M wouldn't have blown the lead had Starkel not gotten hurt.

Other Aggies, such as Chris Coulter, class of 1995, avoided the heat by camping out among UCLA fans under several trees on the Brookside Golf Course in the shadow of the Rose Bowl. He a third touchdown on A&M's next drive, this time a 1-yarder, to extend the lead to 31-3 with 4:11 to play before the half.

What went down in Pasadena on Sunday, then, was a spectacular response to the growing put-up-or-shut-up chorus and a vivid reminder that, for as much as Rosen's personality and actions outside the lines may not conform to the student-athlete standard parroted by coaches at press conferences and interviews every week, he can freaking play. Next up for UCLA is a Saturday clash with Hawaii.
