UCLA Bruins freshman quarterback Josh Rosen turned in a great performance in his college football debut against the Virginia Cavaliers this past Saturday, and was rewarded accordingly.
On the conference’s official Twitter page, it was announced that Rosen was named the Pac-12 Offensive Player of the Week.
A four-star talent out of St. John Bosco High School in Bellflower, California, about a half hour’s drive away from UCLA’s campus, Rosen’s debut could not have gone better. In the Bruins’ 34-16 victory, Rosen completed 28 of 35 pass attempts for 351 yards and three touchdowns. His poise in the pocket and ability to think quickly on his feet and read defenses in the face of pressure was off the charts, and spells out good things for UCLA’s program.
Up next for Rosen and his teammates is a visit to the UNLV Runnin’ Rebels on the 12th.
