2011 Fiesta Bowl, Oklahoma Vs. Connecticut: Sooners Looking Superb Early

When Oklahoma's offense is clicking, it tends to score a lot, and quickly.

Early in the 2011 Fiesta Bowl, Oklahoma's offense is clicking.

DeMarco Murray bounced a dive off tackle after meeting resistance at the line and took in a three-yard carry for the Sooners' second touchdown of the night. Jimmy Stevens converted the extra point try to make it 14-0 in Glendale.

Oklahoma's offense, so far, has been fearsome: the Sooners have 151 yards through almost all of the first quarter, have converted the only two third downs they have faced, and have drives of 70 and 81 yards. (Landry Jones is a perfect 10-for-10 on his throws.)

Connecticut, by contrast, has tallied just 64 yards of total offense, and looks about as lost on defense as one might expect an 8-4 team that lost to Michigan and Temple to look against one of the nation's best offenses.

And if anyone predicted this was going to be the worst Fiesta Bowl or worst BCS bowl game in history ... well, early on, there is little evidence to contradict that claim.
