Countdown to Kickoff for college football: 10

CollegeBaseCollege Kickoff Countdown is a daily series on the On Campus blog. There are now 10 days until the opening day of the 2014 season.

Number of the day: 10

Eleven days ago, College Kickoff Countdown addressed the Navy football team’s remarkable discipline in 2013, noting that the Midshipmen averaged 21.69 penalty yards per game.

Today, the spotlight is back on Navy’s precision execution.

The Midshipmen lost just 10 turnovers in 13 games last year while tying Louisville for the least amount of turnovers in the nation among 123 FBS teams.

Navy lost just six fumbles and was intercepted only four times during the season. That’s even more remarkable considering the Midshipmen run a high-risk flexbone offense that requires quarterback Keenan Reynolds to make split-second reads and decisions.

As a side note, Southern Mississippi ranked last in the nation with 38 turnovers (12 fumbles, 26 interceptions).
