Defense Tracker: Cowboys’ Third-Down Conversion Percentage Is Ridiculous

Through three games, OSU has been as good on third down as any team in the Gundy era.

Yes it’s all great. One that’s really never been a issue is third downs, it’s how the other gets 3rd downs. We’ve had some bad penalties this yr ( has slowed in the last 3) they use to kill us. Rite now it’s the middle and dual qb turning 3rd and long. We will see.

Oh yeah misses Spencer’s turnovers.

I forgot how much of a turnover machine our defense was in 2011. 3.4 per game is ridiculous.

Obviously things look great right now. Let’s revisit once we’ve played Tech, OU, and Texas (offenses that have scored a bunch of points).
