UCLA Routs Arizona in Tucson

Sept. 26 -- No. 9 UCLA beat No. 16 Arizona badly Saturday, winning 56-30 in a game that was a blowout with several minutes remaining in the first half...

TUCSON, Ariz. -- True freshman Josh Rosen was sharp in his first Pac-12 road game, throwing for 284 yards and accounting for three touchdowns in No. 9 UCLA's 56-30 victory over No. 16 Arizona on Saturday night.

UCLA turned this Pac-12 showdown into a laugher by halftime, turning three Arizona turnovers into touchdowns while building a 28-point lead.

Rosen had two touchdowns on 19-of-28 passing and ran for another score after struggling the previous two games. Paul Perkins ran for 85 yards and three more scores and the Bruins had 497 total yards.

The Bruins (4-0, 1-0) played well defensively without star linebacker Myles Jack, grounding Arizona's high-flying offense most of the night.

Arizona (3-1, 0-1) struggled at home after rolling through a soft nonconference schedule.

The Wildcats had trouble stopping Rosen and the Bruins even with All-America linebacker Scooby Wright back, plagued by a slew of missed tackles.
