True freshman quarterback Josh Rosen is putting on a show for UCLA fans during his first start as a Bruin, completing 17-of-22 passes for 175 yard and two touchdowns - a passer rating of 174.1 - in the first half against Virginia. 

Rosen, who was rated as the No. 1 pro-style quarterback in the 2017 class, is showing why he was so highly touted out of high school as he slices up the Cavaliers' defense. While he has played well overall, a couple of his throws have been stellar, including this beautiful 30-yard touchdown pass to Thomas Duarte.

The Bruins lead the Cavaliers 17-9 at the half. And if Rosen keeps dropping dimes like this, UCLA will hold on to this one.
