While potential top-5 draft pick Josh Rosen has been good for UCLA (18 for 28, 189 yards, 1 TD), it's been the UCLA rushing game that's carried the Bruins to 24 first-half points. Rosen did get a touchdown through the air:

Memphis, meanwhile, has racked up 27 points on Riley Ferguson's 4 touchdown passes to lead the game 27-24 at the break. Memphis has two screen pass touchdowns and four different players have receiving touchdowns, including Anthony Miller, who also had a crazy diving catch to set up a score.
They got things going, though, with a huge run on the first offensive snap:

Hopefully the second half is just as good.
