Connecticut Huskies Ready For Fiesta Bowl Showdown With Oklahoma Sooners

In case you were wondering, the UConn Huskies are all set to take on the Oklahoma Sooners. After several days of fielding questions regarding their mediocre record and whether or not they "belong" in the Fiesta Bowl in Glendale, the time has come to put up or shut up. With roughly twenty minutes before kickoff, it's time to see what the Big East champions are made of.

Here are some pictures to whet your appetite for the game that's about to begin. I'll be bringing you Connecticut Huskies coverage all evening for SB Nation Arizona, so stick here for big updates.
