Oklahoma State football: Bill Young's turnover factory puts on extra shift
Q&A — Oklahoma State defensive coordinator Bill Young says pressure on OU's Landry Jones and the Cowboys' commitment to force turnovers were key to their 44-10 victory. But “blind luck” didn't hurt either.
The Oklahoma State defensive coordinator's bunch had its best performance of the season, holding Oklahoma to 10 points and 358 yards.

Quite a night for your defense. Your thoughts?
We played really well. Really proud of them.
What was your game plan going in?
We wanted to try to get as much pressure as we could. The quarterback is such an outstanding player. We knew if we gave him any time at all he was going to eat us up. We thought that was going to be a huge factor. Just tried to keep the ball in front of us and make some plays. Turnovers obviously (are) something that we strive and thrive on, and that was a big factor.
What about the two big turnovers, the first Jamie Blatnick returned to the 1-yard line and the second Richetti Jones recovered for a touchdown?
Sometimes, it's just blind luck. Sometimes, it's just hard work and preparation. I think it was a combination of all those.
