  1. Turnovers will once again be key. If we didn’t lead the nation in turnovers right now we would be at least 3-3, with 5-1 an even bigger possibility. Unfortunately, the Notre Dame game is the only one in which turnovers were not an issue.

  2. mmmmmm, turnovers…..

  3. Yeah, that turnover margin is not a pretty match-up, especially when you consider how the Buckeyes have been getting them — team efforts. Pressure on the QB, good coverage and good hands.

    It helps to get a little lucky as well.
