2011 Fiesta Bowl, Oklahoma Vs. Connecticut: Huskies Return Interception For A Touchdown

The Oklahoma Sooners are in a giving mood all of a sudden. After dashing to a 14-0 lead in the Fiesta Bowl, Oklahoma quarterback Landry Jones gifted UConn a touchdown as Dwayne Gratz stepped in front of a pass and returned it 46 yards for the score. The pick-six finally gets UConn on the board after the Huskies were held scoreless in the first quarter.

Jones had been perfect on the day, completing all 11 of his passes for 114 yards and a touchdown. His 12th pass was completed, but to the wrong team. With the Oklahoma defense holding strong, and the offense looking dominant early, the pick-six breathes new life into a UConn team that was in severe danger of letting the game slip-away early in the Fiesta Bowl. The interception was the first turnover by either team in what’s been a relatively clean game thus far.

Early in the second quarter, UConn trails Oklahoma, 14-7.
