Josh Rosen leads UCLA to 34-point comeback to stun Texas A&M

  Josh Rosen threw the game-winning touchdown pass with 47 seconds remaining to complete the comeback.

UCLA opened its 2017 season with the largest college football comeback in 11 years, stunning Texas A&M 45-44 Sunday night in Pasadena with 35 unanswered points in the second half.

The Bruins fell behind 44-10 late in the third quarter before their offense finally awoke over the final 17 minutes of regulation. Quarterback Josh Rosen led the way with four touchdowns in the final quarter, including the game-winning connection with Jordan Lasley with 47 seconds left. And it came on a fake spike that would make Dan Marino proud.

Rosen finished with a career-high 491 passing yards and four touchdowns — including 292 yards and all four scores in the final quarter.

UCLA became the first program since Michigan State in 2006 to win a game in which it once trailed by 34 points. The Spartans did so on Oct. 21, 2006 against Northwestern, according to ESPN Stats & Info.
