3-point stance: Irish's turnover turnaround
1. What do Lane Kiffin of USC, Chip Kelly of Oregon and James Franklin of Vanderbilt have in common? All three are aggressive grab-it-all coaches and that sensibility is expressed in their reluctance to punt. The Trojans have tried to convert 16 fourth downs, more than anyone in the FBS. The Commodores (12) lead the SEC, and the Ducks (8-of-11, .727) lead the Pac-12 in conversion percentage. Don’t forget, No. 2 Oregon hasn’t had to go for it on fourth down to come from behind.
