If the Fiesta Bowl is going to be competitive, it may require UConn's offense to put up points on the Oklahoma defense. Early returns suggest that the Huskies will have some problems with the Sooners' offense.
Oklahoma's James Hanna caught an eight-yard touchdown pass to cap a nine-play, 70-yard opening drive, and after the Jimmy Stevens extra point, it's 7-0 in the Sooners' favor at the Fiesta Bowl in Glendale.
Oklahoma's big three on offense showed no signs of rust on the opening drive. Landry Jones was six of six for 55 yards, Ryan Broyles had two catches for 30 yards, and DeMarco Murray spurted up the middle for an 11-yard drive.
Connecticut's offense is now going to have to hold serve. It's already been broken once: the Huskies received the opening kickoff and failed to get even one first down on the drive, with Jordan Todman gaining just two yards on three carries.
