Coach Randy Edsall can lead the Huskies to an upset victory over the Sooners
Let's see...Oklahoma wins the Big 12 championship and winds up in the Fiesta Bowl against an upstart team that upgraded to FBS a decade ago and doesn't have much to lose. Sound familiar? It should.
In the 2007 Fiesta Bowl, heavily favored Oklahoma faced an upstart Boise State team who almost nobody gave a chance to win. But the Broncos won.
Now the Huskies come in, having just upgraded to FBS 10 years ago—and they've been red-hot, winning five straight.
They had injury issues early in the year with running back Jordan Todman and linebacker Scott Lutrus. Plus, there were the quarterback issues with Zach Frazer being benched for Cody Endres before Endres was kicked off the team, leading to the Michael Box debacle against Louisville. But now Frazer is back and better than ever, having won all five games since winning the job back.
Todman is the second-leading rusher in the NCAA, so look for him to lead the Huskies to victory.
