The UConn Huskies have a practice under their belts in Arizona as they gear up for the Fiesta Bowl.

Members of the team's offense sat down with the media Tuesday to talk about their strategy going into Saturday's big game.

Senior quarterback Zach Frazer says it will be a tough game, but says the Huskies will be prepared. "If their game plan is to stop the run, then I feel confident in our passing game," Frazer said, according to UConn's website. "Our game plan going in this week is pretty good, we have had lots of time to analyze their defense and watch film."

As for being underdogs to the Oklahoma Sooners, Senior guard Zach Hurd says it's not something the team worries about. "We don't really care what anyone else thinks. We are here and we are having a great time. We finished off five games in a row against good opponents and some might say that the Big East isn't that strong, but we still have to come out and play the game this weekend," Hurd said.

That's not to say that UConn doesn't have respect for a powerful Oklahoma team.

"They are a very athletic defense and very talented, Jr. running back Jordan Todman told UConnHuskies.com. "You could compare them to West Virginia a little and it is going to be a tough task, but we are ready to go out there and compete and play to win."
