#5 – WIN THE TURNOVER BATTLE
When you play against an evenly-matched opponent, turnovers can be the difference-maker. The Tech secondary needs to come up with an interception if possible. In particular, quarterback Vad Lee needs to protect the ball, both while throwing it and while pitching it in the option. If Tech ends up in the negative end of the turnover margin, it’s a safe bet they’ll be on the short end of the score.
