The UCLA Bruins found themselves ranked in the top 25 entering this weekend. They’re teetering on the edge of losing that position against Memphis in the third week of the season.
In what has been a seesaw battle, the Bruins and the Tigers continue to trade blows as the game enters the fourth quarter.
With all the offensive scoring that is being done, giving points away to the other team could prove to be the deciding factor. If that’s the case, Josh Rosen will be kicking himself in the locker room after the game. He was baited into an ill-advised pass that was returned for a touchdown by the Memphis defense midway through the third quarter.
The score gave Memphis at ten-point lead.
