Josh Rosen sits out Cactus Bowl

PHOENIX UCLA star quarterback Josh Rosen will not play in the Cactus Bowl against Kansas State. Rosen threw passes in warmups prior to the game, but was not anticipated to play as he deals with concussion side-effects.

The assumption that Rosen would sit out was confirmed when the likely first-round draft pick did not start the game.

Rosen has led a UCLA passing attack that averages more than 350 yards per game through the air.
