The University of Connecticut football program has made unprecedented progress this season. Standing in their way in Phoenix will be the mighty Sooners of Oklahoma.
Ryan Tannehill threw for 225 yards and two touchdowns, Cyrus Gray added 122 yards rushing another score and Texas A&M broke a seven-game losing streak to No. 11 Oklahoma with a 33-19 win over the Sooners on Saturday night.
DeMarco Murray gained a total of 148 yards and scored three touchdowns, helping the Sooners squeak by Air Force 27-24 Saturday in another close victory at home.
