UCLA freshman quarterback Josh Rosen has played well in his first season; are the Bruins using him enough on offense?

After the Bruins were held to just 62 rushing yards vs. ASU on Saturday, perhaps things need to change for UCLA. According to the Los Angeles Times, UCLA ran the ball 11 times on their first 19 first-down attempts. But it didn't work, UCLA trailed 29-10.  

During the third quarter, UCLA began to throw the ball more often and Rosen led two consecutive touchdown drives. Finally, UCLA seemed to mount a comeback effort. 

“You throw the ball. You work around it,” receiver Thomas Duare told the LA Times. “You work your reads.”
