(Norman-AP) -- Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops says the Sooners rank high in the only statistics he cares about.

O-U is among the national leaders averaging more than 44 points per game, giving up less than 16 points per game and in turnover margin.

The Sooners have committed 13 turnovers, while taking the ball away 24 times. That ranks the team fifth nationally.

Stoops says the turnover margin may be the most important of the three. He says turnovers can change the other statistics, and that O-U's offense is taking care of the ball.
