Within 10 minutes of play after the pick-six, Rosen had the Bruins back on top, launching a ideal 21-yard touchdown pass to Jordan Lasley in the corner of the end zone on the ensuing possession and then hitting Austin Roberts for another score early in the fourth quarter to give UCLA a 45-41 lead. Lasley's absence opened the door for Theo Howard to produce the best game of his college career, and Darren Andrews made three more touchdown catches, giving him five on the season.

All the points were scored in this game. All. Of. It's still hard to get a good read on either team, but both were known for quality defenses in recent years.

The Tigers defeated the number 25 team in the country UCLA by a score of 48-45.

The Bruins surrendered 398 passing yards to quarterback Riley Ferguson, who was responsible for six of the Tigers' seven touchdowns.

Twenty-First Century Fox, Inc. (FOXA): What are the Technicals Saying?
The company reported the earnings of $0.36/Share in the last quarter where the estimated EPS by analysts was $0.37/share. Carnegie Asset Mgmt Ltd Liability Corp holds 0.12% of its portfolio in Hexcel Corporation (NYSE:HXL) for 18,165 shares.

Memphis responded with a four-play, 81-yard drive, the final 3 yards coming on Ferguson's pass to Phil Mayhue with 9:56 left. In the end, the loss came down to the quarterback at his own 20-yard line, with 2:47 to win the game, and he came up short, turning the ball over on downs. "I just made some stupid mistakes", Rosen said.

The biggest non-conference game of the season for the Memphis Tigers is on the horizon. The Tigers were led in rushing by Darrell Henderson, who had 14 carries for 105 yards, the fourth time in three games the Bruins have allowed an opponent to surpass 100 yards on the ground. It is hard to imagine they will not drop out in next week's poll after losing to an unranked team. Memphis officials said he was moving. "I saw him at halftime, and got to go in and talk to him".

In an offensive-oriented game, it was a defensive play by Memphis defensive back Jacobi Francis that secured the victory. "But our guys continued to push and continued to battle". He will face a decent challenge next Saturday as UCLA goes on the road to play against Stanford. Memphis has played three home games because its September 9 game at Central Florida was postponed due to Hurricane Irma.
