In their 2017 season opener against Texas A&M, UCLA was down by 34 points in the second half, but Josh Rosen showed why his nickname is “The Chosen One”, he put his team on his back and cut the lead to six points late in the fourth quarter. Then Josh Rosen pulled the old Dan Marino fake spike trick, and threw a perfectly placed pass which was caught for a touchdown. The extra point was good, UCLA had the lead, and secured the second biggest comeback win in college football history. Instant classic, unbelievable, the legend of “The Chosen One” grows.
