MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Riley Ferguson went throw-for-throw with Heisman hopeful Josh Rosen, throwing for 398 yards and a career high-tying 6 TD’s as the Tigers knocked off 25th-ranked UCLA 48-45 in a shootout at the Liberty Bowl on Saturday.

Former CBHS star Anthony Miller caught 9 passes for 185 yards and two touchdowns for the Tigers.

While the U of M defense did give up 45 points and 633 yards to the Bruins, with Rosen throwing for 463 and 4 TD’s, they also picked off Rosen twice including a 60-yard pick six for former MUS star Tim Hart as the Tigers knocked off a ranked opponent at home, for a third straight year.

“This game will be remembered,” Coach Mike Norvell said afterward. “This game will be on our walls. This game is one where, these kids will always be able to say that UCLA came into the Liberty Bowl and we got the job done.”
