What Kevin Sumlin said after Texas A&M's epic collapse against UCLA

The Aggies lead 44-17 in the third quarter at the Rose Bowl. That's when UCLA quarterback Josh Rosen - 35/58, 491 yards, 4 TD, 0 INT on the night - led the ridiculous comeback, and capped it off with this awesome fake spike touchdown pass to tie the game with 43 seconds left. Mental mistakes also hurt the Bruins as they committed seven penalties during the game. Rosen completed a pass to Darren Andrews for a touchdown just a couple minutes into the quarter.

Texas A&M quarterback Kellen Mond was stopped short of the first-down marker on a scramble with 20 seconds left to close out the biggest FBS comeback since Michigan State came from 35 down to beat Northwestern 41-38 in 2006. The Spartans did so on October 21, 2006 against Northwestern, according to ESPN Stats & Info.

With no timeouts and the ball on the 10-yard line in the fourth quarter, Rosen looked to be setting up his team for a spike to stop the clock. JJ Molson kicked the winning extra point. He was helped up and limped off the field with his arms around two Texas A&M staff members.

So defensive coordinator Tom Bradley and the Bruins made a decision to go back to the basics.

On Sunday, they chose to get the collapse over with in one game, rather than wait until November for their fall from grace.

Ezekiel Elliott and NFLPA take legal action against NFL
Elliott was initially suspended six games on August 11; his appeal hearing began this week and ran for three days. This is assuming Henderson doesn't vacate all of the NFL's ruling, which seems unlikely at this point.

Wilson had 15 receptions for 208 yards, and Andrews had 12 catches for 142 yards.

"We're not making excuses for anything", A&M coach Kevin Sumlin said. A Texas A&M defense that through the first two-plus quarters repeatedly put pressure on Rosen, closed off passing windows and locked down receivers wilted in crunch time.

The Aggies will receive to open the second half. "We all know they're a great offense".

Rosen and the rest of the UCLA struggled mightily early. They scored touchdowns on their final five drives, with none of those possessions taking longer than 2:04.
