The idea behind turnover points is that not every turnover is created equal -- some are arm punts worth maybe a point or two in field position. Some are Kaelin Clay laying the ball down at the goal line and having Oregon take it 100 yards in the other direction. That was as costly as a turnover can be.
I assume Oregon still wins this game anyway -- Clay scores, and in theory it's 44-34 Oregon instead of 51-27 -- but Utah was moving the ball very, very efficiently, and Oregon didn't create as much with its scoring opportunities as you would like to see from a national title contender. Utah might have been able to hold onto a 14-0 lead for quite a while. That was a killer.
