1) Towson's ball protection. As convincing as that season opener was, the Tigers did show a couple flaws. One was their inability to retain possession, which showed up in the form of 16 turnovers. That's the most for the program since committing 18 giveaways on March 3, 2015, and that required three overtimes in a loss at Navy. Ultimately, the turnovers did not prevent Towson from cruising to the win, but coach Shawn Nadelen said the team cannot afford to be that generous again.
