2011 Fiesta Bowl, Oklahoma Vs. UConn: Sooners' Fake FG Fails; LB Ronnell Lewis Injured

The 2011 Fiesta Bowl may not exactly be a competitive football game at the moment, but it is by any standard an entertaining one. Following UConn's post-score kickoff, Oklahoma is held to another three-and-out, and the Huskies muff (but recover) the attendant punt. A Dave Teggart field goal ends the drive, but the Huskies can't keep pace if they keep kicking for their points.

Two possessions later, they get another shot at the endzone, as phenom Ryan Broyles fields a Huskies punt, breaks away from coverage, is chased down by UConn's Lawrence Wilson, and watches the ball flutter out of his hands apparently of its own accord. Jordan Todman converts the first set of downs, but the Huskies punt on the second, and Oklahoma sets up at their own 24-yard line. The Sooners are held to a field goal attempt, which turns out to be a fake field-goal attempt, wherein John Nimmo's high spiral is batted down near the goal line. It is entirely possible that Oklahoma's trying actively to throw this game because they're so recently unused to winning at BCS football. With 13:55 remaining in the fourth quarter, Oklahoma leads UConn, 34-20.

At some point during the past few series, sophomore OU linebacker Ronnell Lewis reportedly injures his neck on a block. It wasn't noticeable at the time because he walked off the field immediately after the play, but he's currently being strapped to a backboard and taken to a local hospital, despite moving all four limbs in what looks like normal fashion. We'll keep you updated on his condition as more news becomes available.
