Unfazed, Rosen went back to work and tossed a 21-yard TD pass to Jordan Lasley to trim the margin to three.
"One game can't define a season, but one game can be remembered", Norvell said.
Both teams managed to answer the opponents' scores through the game. The Memphis player who didn't get much attention last weekend was senior quarterback Riley Ferguson, who passed for 3,698 yards and a school-record 32 touchdowns last campaign but was just 10-of-25 for 95 yards and an interception in the season opener on August 31.
Without seniors Kenny Young and Jaleel Wadood, the UCLA defense yielded 633 yards to the Tigers.

Offensively, Tennessee football averages 42.0 points and 435.0 total yards (106.5 in passing and 328.5 in rushing) per game. Last season, Kelly led the Vols with 71 tackles, and had two interceptions, starting 11 of Tennessee's 12 games.
A visit by the 25th ranked UCLA Bruins is getting everyone's attention.
Both offenses provided plenty of fireworks during a shootout that involved seven lead changes and wasn't decided until the final seconds, but Riley Ferguson (398 yards, six touchdowns, one interception) got the better of Rosen (463 yards, four touchdowns, two interceptions) on an afternoon that made it clear Rosen has to be something very close to flawless in order for the Bruins to be successful. Texas A&M led 44-10 with less than five minutes remaining in the third quarter before UCLA scored the final five touchdowns of the contest to shock the SEC's Aggies and start the season with an improbable victory.
Also, Demetric Felton ran for 37 yards notching a score while Bolu Olorunfunmi ran for 32 yards and a score. UCLA DL Osa Odighizuwa was ejected with 11:03 left following a targeting penalty after his helmet-to-helmet hit of QB Riley Ferguson.

North Korea Is Pushing Its Limits With The Trump Administration
Dictator Kim Jong-un has repeatedly threatened to attack both Guam and Japan with missiles, possibly using nuclear warheads. While U.S. officials say they prefer a diplomatic solution to this nuclear standoff, military force is also an option.
Despite the risky mistake, Memphis held on, stopping UCLA on fourth-and-five at the Tigers' 46-yard line to seal the win.
In what has been a seesaw battle, the Bruins and the Tigers continue to trade blows as the game enters the fourth quarter. It is hard to imagine they will not drop out in next week's poll after losing to an unranked team.
A failed fake field goal gave UCLA one last chance and it slipped through the arms of Darren Andrews 10 plays later on fourth-and-3. "I saw him at halftime, and got to go in and talk to him".
LAST WORD: "We didn't play a ideal game". Memphis has played three home games because its September 9 game at Central Florida was postponed due to Hurricane Irma.

The Aggies need to play three solid quarters and put the game away before the middle of the fourth. Things are still off to a rocky start this year for the Aggies under head coach Kevin Sumlin .
