The biggest plays that secured UCLA’s comeback over Texas A&M

UCLA was getting blown out by Texas A&M at halftime on Sunday night.

The Aggies ran all over the Bruins in the game’s opening 30 minutes and carried a 38-10 lead into halftime. With four minutes left in the third quarter, Texas A&M grew its advantage to 34 points.

But, UCLA rallied over the next 18 minutes to pull off a shocking 45-44 comeback win.

Here are six plays that led to the Bruins' miraculous victory.

On its following drive, quarterback Josh Rosen led UCLA on an eight-play, 85-yard drive that ended with a touchdown pass to Darren Andrews, making the score 44-24.

Texas A&M misses INT by inches
Texas A&M defensive back Deshawn Capers-Smith appeared to have an easy interception with 8:15 remaining and his team leading by 20. Rosen threw a deep pass down the middle of the field that was intended for Darren Andrews, and Capers-Smith jumped the route and looked to have the ball picked off.

The pass went right through Capers-Smith hands and into the outstretched arms of Andrews for a 42-yard touchdown, as UCLA trimmed its deficit to 44-31.

Rosen avoids the rush, completes end zone heave
Josh Rosen was almost sacked for a significant loss in the red zone with just over three minutes left in the contest.

Texas A&M managed to penetrate up the middle for a free shot at Rosen. The Bruins quarterback evaded the pressure, ranged a few steps to his left and threw up a prayer into the end zone just before being sacked.

Theo Howard broke free from his defender and settled under Rosen’s toss for the 16-yard touchdown reception, moving UCLA to within six points.
