Sept. 14 -- UCLA senior receiver Jordan Payton talks about his touchdown catch and the play of Josh Rosen...

Jordan Payton had a 70-yard, five-catch performance against UNLV, and also caught a nice touchdown from quarterback Josh Rosen.

On the offense overall:

I felt good. We could have finished better in the red zone.  We got in to the red zone a couple times. We moved the ball, but just didn't finish. Overall, I thought we moved the ball extremely well.   We left a lot of points out there.  Credit to them.  Overall, it was a good performance and we'll come out and get ready for BYU.

On his touchdown:

They went single safety and went skinny post route, Josh threw it on time and we just finished.

On the schedule toughening up:

BYU then Pac-12 play.  Getting everyone ready. UNLV played tough at home, but we got this win and we have to get ready for a tough opponent and Pac-12 play. We have a tough game coming up.

On what they need to improve on:

Just getting better.  I focus on what I can do, what the offense can do. We have a freshman quarterback, so be there for him every play.

On the lack of a rhythym:

I didn't really feel like we fell out of one.  Overall, that's what happens at times.  There is nothing really specific.  Sometimes we got out of it on first down, but other than that, we ran the ball well.

On Josh Rosen:

Josh did well.  He threw the interception, but I can't sit here and critique him.  For a freshman to come out in his first away game, to throw for 240 yards and get this win is fantastic. I can't complain about that.
