This is, if I may oversimplify for a second, how you leverage turnover margin. NC State could take a lesson. Fumbles are the source of ECU's gains in this department: they've forced 16 fumbles and recovered 10 while only fumbling six times themselves, losing one. So they've recovered 15 of 22 fumbles on the season (68.2%), which is just slightly fortunate.

Opponents are averaging five more points, 12 more plays, and 120 more total yards per game...and the Pirates are 4-3.

Since we turn the ball over three times before breakfast, I wouldn't expect anything to change on Saturday.
