Game Recap

Oklahoma kept UConn from scoring a single offensive touchdown and pulled away in the 4th quarter for a 48-20 Fiesta Bowl victory on New Year's Day. The win ended a string of five BCS bowl losses for the Sooners who finished the season 12-2.

The Sooners scored touchdowns on their first two possessions and, in between, held UConn on downs at the Oklahoma 19 to open a 14-0 lead. Afterward, the Huskies (8-5) never got closer than 10 points.

Oklahoma QB Landry Jones threw for 429 yards and 3 TD's as part of a 524-yard onslaught.

Connecticut's scores came on a 46-yard interception return, a 95-yard kick-off return and a pair of field goals, but Oklahoma also had a pair of pick-6's of 55 and 22 yards.

The Sooners improved to 2-3 in their bowl with their first Fiesta since beating Wyoming in 1976.

Last year’s victory in the Sun Bowl ended a three-game bowl losing streak for the Sooners who's last BCS win came in the 2003 Rose Bowl.

This was UConn's first trip to a BCS game and the Huskies were heavy underdogs after winning the Big East with an overall record of 8-4 and a conference mark of 5-2, tying Pitt and West Virginia. UConn won the bowl bid by virtue of its tie-breaking victories over the Panthers and Mountaineers.

Connecticut came into the game riding a 5-game winning streak after a 3-4 start.

Oklahoma improved its all-time bowl record to 26-17-1, tying Georgia for the 4th-most bowl victories. UConn fell to 3-2.
