For the third straight season, the Memphis Tigers have upset a ranked opponent.
No. 25 UCLA was the victim on Saturday, as the Bruins couldn’t muster a late-game drive to tie or take the lead behind quarterback Josh Rosen. On fourth down, he tried to fit a throw to wide receiver Darren Andrews, to no avail.

Rosen was the quarterback to watch coming into the non-conference matchup, but Riley Ferguson held his own. The Memphis signal caller completed 23 passes for 398 yards and a whopping six touchdowns, outdueling one of the projected top draft picks in 2018.
