Shinn at 3 p.m.: Sooners need to control turnovers from day-one

The Norman Transcript

NORMAN — Oklahoma opens the season needing to break one very bad streak.

It committed at least one turnover in every game last season.

The final total of 29 was the team's highest mark since committing 33 in 2006. The efficiency must start with quarterback Landry Jones.

During his first three seasons as the Sooners' quarterback he has thrown an average of 1.025 interceptions per game while averaging 2.35 touchdown passes a game.

That touchdown-pass-to-turnover ratio needs be better than of 3-to-1 for OU's offense to really click.
