Connecticut Defense Stops Oklahoma, Huskies Coming Back?

At the half, the Connecticut Huskies had to feel good about themselves. Despite being outplayed, outmuscled and outgunned, the Oklahoma Sooners only led 20-10.

With OU receiving the ball after the half, UConn could have found themselves even further in the hole. Instead, they came out and played tough defense, forcing a Sooners punt.

While Connecticut was unable to score on their next drive, they still showed a lot of character and mental toughness. It would have been easy to roll over and get blown out after going down 14-0 early, and a lot of that must be attributed to coach Randy Edsall. He has prepared his Huskies well for this Fiesta Bowl fight.
