Fiesta Bowl: Oklahoma Offense Explodes Again, Defense Follows With Pick Six, 34-10

Just when it looked like Connecticut might be finding a way to get back into this game, the Oklahoma Sooners unleash their own brand of Dust Bowl hell. The Sooner and Huskies were both forced to punt on their first possessions of the second half but on their next drive OU blew the doors off the UConn defense with a quick strike touchdown pass.

The drive consisted of just four plays but went 80 yards in 1:01 minutes. After completing a long third down conversion, Landry Jones immediately found Cameron Kenney on the sideline in single coverage for a 59-yard touchdown strike.

On the subsequent Connecticut possession, the Sooners' Jamell Flemming picked off Zach Frazer and returned the ball to the end zone for a 55-yard pick six.

The only question left in this game is if the Huskies can somehow come back enough to prevent Oklahoma from beating the 17-point spread.
