The UCLA football team returns in 75 days, when the Bruins take the field at College Station against Texas A&M on Sept. 3. It’ll be the start of Josh Rosen’s sophomore season after he was named Pac-12 Offensive Freshman of the Year and a freshman All-America. He passed for 3,670 yards (282.3 per game) and 23 touchdowns to 11 interceptions while completing 60 percent of his passes.
Now the question is what Rosen will do next.
To look at what’s already been done in this situation, here are a few notable, recent quarterbacks who started as true freshmen and how their sophomore seasons compared to their rookie campaigns. These quarterbacks started at least 12 games during their freshman seasons, with three of them starting all of their team’s games like Rosen did in his first year.
