UCLA fell to 2-1 after losing a 48-45 shootout at Memphis at Liberty Bowl Memorial Stadium. The Bruins had a chance to win or tie on their final drive after a failed fake field goal attempt from Memphis, but they stalled near midfield. Memphis dialed up pressure and Josh Rosen was nearly intercepted on first-and-10. Rosen missed his next three passes, including the fourth-down attempt to Darren Andrews.
The UCLA defense gave up a season-high 560 yards and six passing touchdowns to Memphis quarterback Riley Ferguson. Opponents are averaging 515.3 yards per game and 6.2 yards per play against UCLA through three games.
