Lots of third-quarter fireworks
By Ted Miller
GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Just when it seemed like two big plays from Oklahoma ended Connecticut's hopes in the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl, the Huskies get their own big play.
First, Landry Jones connected with Cameron Kenney for a 59-yard touchdown pass. Then, on UConn's ensuing possession, Zach Frazer was intercepted by Jamell Fleming, who rambled 55 yards for a touchdown.
That made it 34-10, and everyone pulled a fork out. Game over, right?
Then Robbie Frey returned the Sooners kickoff 95 yards for a touchdown.
A 17-point deficit still looks considerable for the Huskies -- they have yet to score an offensive touchdown.
But you never know.
