Under The Radar: What You May Have Missed in Week 1


For those who turned off the UCLA-Texas A&M game with the Aggies leading 44-10 with 2:49 to go in the 3rd quarter…..I'm sure you know by now that the Bruins came back to win 45-44 in one of the biggest comebacks in major college football history.

Certainly Josh Rosen deserves a lot of credit for the way he ran the team the last 17+ minutes of the game, but here are some things that you may have slipped under your radar.

1. UCLA’s defense changed up some schemes forcing Texas A&M into more passing downs where they really struggled.

2. Texas A&M failed clock management. With a big lead they stayed in a hurry-up approach leaving 13-15 seconds on the play clock each play that added up to minutes of extra time for UCLA’s offense to make the comeback.
