The Tigers came into the bi-district game with a plus-16 turnover ratio, and they added four more into the plus column by coming up with a pair of fumbles and two interceptions.

The Tigers have forced 30 turnovers this year.

Terrell did have some problems with snaps in the their shotgun formation. The snaps were continually low and at least three of them bounced to the quarterback. The Tigers also had a fumble on a snap when the quarterback was under center.

Terrell made a change at center in the first half when Cameron Potter replaced Jeremy King. But, three plays later, Potter's snap went awry for a 6-yard loss.

Terrell, though, did not have a turnover.
