File:Josh Rosen vs Virginia (cropped).jpg

UCLA freshman quarterback Josh Rosen completed 28 of 35 passes for 351 yards and three touchdowns in a 34–16 win over Virginia. The No. 13 Bruins gained 503 yard in total offense as Rosen completed passes to 11 different receivers. UCLA did not allow a touchdown until the final minutes of the game.[4]

The nation's top quarterback recruit, Rosen was taking over for three-year starter Brett Hundley, who had left for the National Football League (NFL). On the first play, the freshman threw a perfect 55-yard pass to Kenneth Walker III, who dropped the pass. The drive stalled, but Rosen completed seven consecutive passes at the end of the quarter, including a scoring pass to Devin Fuller. In the middle of the second quarter, Rosen connected with Thomas Duarte on a 30-yard pass placed over the defender's shoulder and into his receiver's hands. Two defenders playing on offense scored for UCLA in the third. Linebacker Myles Jack, who also spends some time at running back, scored on a run, and defensive tackle Kenny Clark caught a scoring pass late in the quarter. Virginia, who had been limited to three field goals, scored their only touchdown with 3:29 left in the game.[5]

The Cavaliers had been selected to finish last among seven teams in the Atlantic Coast Conference's Coastal Division, and lost six of seven games dating back to the previous season.[4][5] Rosen was honored as the Walter Camp Offensive Player of the Week.[6]
