Pick-six awakens UConn
By Ted Miller
GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Just when you thought it was time to count out Connecticut, the Huskies get a huge play on defense.
Oklahoma quarterback Landry Jones, who'd completed his first 12 passes, got unlucky on his 13th when Huskies cornerback Dwayne Gratz picked it off and went 46 yards the other way for a touchdown and cut Oklahoma's lead, 14-7.
It woke up the Huskies fans, who surely were starting to fear a blowout was on. And now UConn has some hope.
And maybe Jones will get rattled? Might find out on this next possession.
