Texas A&M went 22 quarters without forcing a turnover this season, which stretched from the first quarter of a season-opening win over SMU to the fourth quarter of a win over Baylor two weeks ago.
It grabbed another pick last week against Iowa State, but somehow, a fumble recovery eluded them all season.
Entering today's game, Texas A&M had forced just five turnovers. Only Kansas and Minnesota (4) had forced fewer. This, despite leading the nation with 28 sacks.
That's a second huge stop for this defense, which held the Tigers to a field goal at the end of the first half, and forced a three-and-out to open the second half.
There have been plenty of frustrating moments for defensive coordinator Tim DeRuyter, but today's been well-stocked with bright spots, and the Aggies have benefited.
