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

The game was bananas.

The Aggies lost despite rushing for 382 yards; A&M rushed for 286 yards in the first half.

"How many seconds were left?"

But Knight wasn't on Texas A&M's sideline Sunday as the Bruins made another comeback. Rosen threw touchdown passes of 9 and 42 yards to Darren Andrews before finding Theo Howard for a 16-yard score on a broken play with 3:08 remaining.

Coulter said he joked earlier in the day with UCLA friends who attended last year's game at Kyle Field that it was going to be hotter for this year's game, and who would have thought that. The Aggies went into halftime up 38-10, and the game seemed all but over for Josh Rosen and the Bruins. With four minutes left in the third quarter, Texas A&M grew its advantage to 34 points.

Suddenly, though, UCLA found a spark, as Rosen led the Bruins on five straight touchdown drives covering almost 400 total yards, all in the last 19 minutes.

Irma a potential threat to the Leeward Islands
It seemed to be moving west at a speed of about 15 miles per hour with maximum sustained winds of almost 110 mph. While Irma is now a small hurricane, the size guidance suggests it should grow in size during the next 72 hours.

Hurricane Harvey blows gas prices way up
Hurricane Harvey , which is now pummelling Texas with rain, is to blame for the uptick in gas prices in the Montreal area. McTeague said although Alberta doesn't import gasoline from the US , the prices are based on the larger market conditions.

Rosen finished 35-of-59 for 491 yards and four TDs.

The touchdown pass capped a 10-play, 66-yard drive that started with 1:56 to play. The offensive line was awful for three quarters as Rosen was hurried on nearly every play and was sacked three times and fumbled twice after getting hit while attempting passes.

The Aggies used two freshman quarterbacks, Kellen Mond and Nick Starkel, with Starkel leaving the game in the third quarter with an apparent leg injury.

Starkel was seen in a walking boot and using crutches after exiting the game. Josh Rosen moved the ball well, but we just didn't finish executing. There were no forced turnovers or big special teams plays, just the defense coming up with stops (and a missed Aggies field goal) and Rosen making fantastic throws and even some lucky throws. When they finally turned loose their star quarterback, the Bruins looked nothing like the inept offense that did practically nothing for most of the game.

What went down in Pasadena on Sunday, then, was a spectacular response to the growing put-up-or-shut-up chorus and a vivid reminder that, for as much as Rosen's personality and actions outside the lines may not conform to the student-athlete standard parroted by coaches at press conferences and interviews every week, he can freaking play.
