UCLA safety Jaleel Wadood talked about the Bruins’ 40-24 win over Cal, in which the defense held quarterback Jared Goff to 5.6 yards per pass attempt — his lowest mark since Nov. 9, 2013, when he was a true freshman.
After UCLA lost Paul Perkins to a leg injury in the second quarter, freshman Soso Jamabo took the lead role in the Bruins’ backfield through the rest of the 40-24 win over No. 20 Cal. He finished with 79 yards and a touchdown on 18 carries, the first time he’s had double-digit touches in his career.
UCLA defensive coordinator Tom Bradley talked about the Bruins’ 40-24 win over No. 20 Cal, touching on his defensive backs’ performance as well as the loss of inside linebacker Isaako Savaiinaea to what looked like a severe leg injury.
Here are the records that Josh Rosen set on Thursday night, when he put in a career performance in a 40-24 win over Cal:
— 34 completions, the most in a single game by any UCLA quarterback. Brett Hundley and Richard Brehaut both had 33 in 2014 and 2010, respectively.
— 399 passing yards, the sixth-highest single-game total in UCLA history. It broke his own freshman single-game mark of 351, which he set in his career debut against Virginia.
— 1,967 passing yards on the season, the most for a UCLA true freshman. Cade McNown had 1,698 in 1995. Rosen has at least five games left to pull away.
Asked about his completions record, Rosen said: “I don’t really care. We won the football game. One of my idols is Kellen Moore, the winningest quarterback in college football. His name rings a lot more bells than, I think it was the University of Houston quarterback (Case Keenum) that has the most passing yards of all time.
“I really don’t care. I just want to win football games.”
