These are always big and were a bugaboo early in the season, so I was curious to see what the numbers showed. Looks like steady progress in penalties save for the Illinois game (would have to dig deeper into the play-by-play to see how many of those were by reserves late in the game). Up and down for turnovers (same with reserves against Bethune-Cookman and Illinois).

Defensively, we have gotten much better at forcing turnovers as the season has progressed.

As much as penalties were a problem for us early in the year, I was a little shocked to see how much our opponents were penalized, too.

We did get better with penalties after the Northwestern game, those penalties were costing us games the first half of the season.
