“When we won six in a row late last year, we won the turnover battle in every single one of those games,” said Baylor coach Art Briles. “We have actually won the turnover battle the last four games, we just couldn't pull a win out against Oklahoma.
“Once you get going, you start to feel like you are going to force a turnover every possession.”
The Bears have five games with at least three takeaways this season. Under defensive coordinator Phil Bennett, they are 14-2 when forcing two turnovers or more.
SHARP NAMED ALL-AMERICAN
Cowboys kicker/punter Quinn Sharp was named the American Football Coaches Association's All-America kicker on Wednesday.
Sharp is the first Cowboy to earn All-America honors in three different seasons. He was named to the Football Writers Association of America's team as a punter in 2010 and kicker in 2011.
Entering OSU's final regular-season game against Baylor, Sharp leads the nation with 2.09 field goals per game and leads all kickers with 11.8 points per game. His 0.833 field-goal percentage ranks third in the nation. He is also 61-for-61 on PATs and leads the nation with 65 touchbacks on kickoffs.
Sharp has also excelled as a punter this season, leading the Big 12 with 46.2 yards per punt. OSU ranks eighth nationally in net punting (40.46).
