Twitter Explodes For Josh Rosen's Fake Spike Touchdown To Erase 34-Point Deficit
UCLA quarterback Josh Rosen connected with Jordan Lasley on a fake spike that turned into a 10-yard touchdown pass and erased a 34-point deficit to beat Texas A&M 45-44 on Sunday night at the Rose Bowl.
Rosen finished the day 35 of 59 passing for 491 yards and four touchdowns – all four of which came in the fourth quarter. It is the second-biggest comeback in NCAA football history.
UCLA scored on five straight possessions after trailing 44–10 in the third quarter.
