Josh Rosen isn’t hearing any of the negative noise anymore.

After the possibility of Josh Rosen not being an elite quarterback came up before the season began, the UCLA Bruins star knew he had to shut the critics up somehow. It didn’t seem likely in the season opener though, as Texas A&M ruffled his feathers and went on to collect a 34-point lead in the third quarter with the tally being 44-10.

Instead of panicking and not trying to fight back, UCLA’s quarterback orchestrated the second biggest comeback in college football history. It was not without it’s dramatic moments at the end either, as the Bruins scored on a fake spike with less than a minute left.

Even then, some seemed to think that it was just a fluke game and that Rosen might cool off as soon as the second week. However, this past weekend against the Hawaii Rainbow Warriors showed otherwise.

Rosen threw for a career high five touchdown passes and helped the Bruins route Hawaii to advance to 2-0 on the season. He also went 22-25 through the air, throwing for 329 yards and no interceptions.

The craziest part is that he has yet to throw an interception all season, while already having nine touchdowns under his belt.

Next up on Rosen and the Bruin’s calendar is a date with the Memphis Tigers on the road. While it may not seem that Memphis is that threatening of an opponent, it will be telling as to whether or not Rosen has a problem playing against them.

After that the Bruins have to go up against Stanford, which if anything will prove as the real test for Josh Rosen. Assuming all goes at least decent if not exceptional the rest of the way, watching Rosen play Sam Darnold in the regular season finale will be a fireworks show you won’t want to miss.
