It's all about the turnover margin
- by Administrator 2 years ago
The more we look at it, the harder it is to ignore the importance of the turnover margin.
Every undefeated team is ranked in the top 20 of this stat: Oklahoma State (#1), LSU (#2), Boise State (t - 7th), Houston (t - 7th), Kansas State (t - 10th), Clemson (#12), Stanford (t - 15th) and Alabama (t - 19th).
We noticed this morning that LSU has now gone 335 straight offensive plays without giving up a turnover. It sure is easier to win when your defense doesn't have to defend a short field.
