OU vs. UConn Postgame: Breaking It Down

GLENDALE, Ariz. — OU won for the first time in a BCS game since the 2002-03 season when it beat Washington State in the Rose Bowl with its 48-20 Saturday night victory over UConn.

Game ball goes to: Quarterback Landry Jones—As if saying last year's performance wasn't good enough, Jones broke his own record 418 yards in the 2009 Sun Bowl with his 428-yard night against the Huskies, setting a new OU all-time record once again. He was 34-of-49 passing and had three touchdowns, although he tossed one interception, en route to earning Offensive Player of the Game.

Play of the game: With just less than eight minutes remaining in the game, slot receiver Ryan Broyles hauled in a magnificent 5-yard touchdown catch along the right boundary in the end zone. His concentration and footwork in order to get a foot in bounds and hang onto the ball was incredible since his momentum was leading him out of bounds.

It was over when: Cornerback Jamell Fleming took an interception back for a touchdown with 9:44 remaining in the third quarter to make it 34-10 Sooners.

Surprise of the game:Maybe this isn't a complete shock, but it's still surprising that he was able to shred the UConn secondary for 429 yards and set the OU all-time passing record in a bowl game two straight years.

The biggest thing we learned: The Sooners were ample prepared. In years past, it's appeared that the Sooners were unprepared and perhaps unmotivated for their Fiesta Bowl match-ups. That wasn't the case this time around.

The biggest concern: Whether or not Broyles and linebacker Travis Lewis will return for next season. Both said after the game they are still undecided.
