Utes look to avoid 5th straight loss with Bruins up next


(KUTV) The Utes have lost 4 straight games after getting beat at Oregon over the weekend. They will host UCLA this Friday at Rice-Eccles Stadium and the Bruins might be without their starting QB.

UCLA quarterback Josh Rosen was 12 of 21 passing for 93 yards and was sacked four times in Saturday's loss at Washington. Rosen was pulled midway through the third quarter and later was on the sideline in sweats. UCLA coach Jim Mora said it was multiple things that caused him to pull Rosen, who was limping after being sacked in the second quarter by Washington's Austin Joyner. Rosen threw a 7-yard TD pass to Jordan Wilson in the second quarter, but Washington scored the next 27 points.

Mora said Rosen would be reevaluated in the next couple of days to determine his status moving forward.

"He took some hits, he's beat up, some multiple things going on," Mora said.

The Bruins (4-4, 2-3) entered the day with the worst run defense in the country, and Washington did its part in making those numbers even worse. Washington was the fourth team this season to rush for at least 300 yards against the Bruins. It was the first time since beating Oregon last season the Huskies topped 300 yards rushing.
