No. 13 UCLA Bruins vs. UNLV Rebels
Josh Rosen had a heck of a debut for UCLA in a week one victory over Virginia at home as he awed the crowd with his strong arm and impeccable accuracy. Oh yeah, and he’s just a freshman. Heading into his second game, the only thing that will be different for the first-year starter is the atmosphere.
While he’s never played on the road before, he has shown the poise in pressure situations after just one game that has UCLA fans trusting him like a fifth-year senior. He showed that he was worthy of the starting position as he completed 28-of-35 passes for an astounding 351 yards and three touchdowns while spreading the ball around to 11 different targets.
As for UNLV, the Rebels weren’t so lucky in week one, recording a loss against Northern Illinois just as they did a season ago. This game might come down to quarterback play as Blake Decker finished with 319 yards and two touchdowns on 21-of-39 completions.
Devonte Boyd proved to be his favorite target as he found the sophomore wide out five times for 107 yards and a score. The Bruins’ pass defense struggled a little bit in week one, but expect them to bounce back in week two to limit Decker to an average, at best, contest.
