COLLEGE STATION (AP)  Texas A&M defensive coordinator Tim DeRuyter just can’t figure it out.
He lectures and harps on the importance of forcing turnovers, but they’ve been few and far between for his defense.

He won’t stop focusing on it, especially this week as the Aggies meet No. 17 Kansas State. The Wildcats rank in the top 10 in the nation in turnover margin.

The Aggies have just seven takeaways this season, which ranks 118th in the country. DeRuyter says that number is “shocking” and that he’s never had a team with so few this late in the season.

Kansas State has three times as many with 21.
