After scoring 56 point against Baylor, Texas is #6 in the nation in scoring.

The Longhorns haven’t lost to Kansas in the Big 12 era.  The last loss to KU was back in 1938.

Phil Knight of Nike gave the Longhorns a pep talk last week.

The Longhorn defense is now #107 in the nation in Total Defense. There 120 teams in FBS.

Mack Brown says the Horns are taking “baby steps on defense”.

He says the Horns continue to make “key mistakes in the red zone”.

The Horns have now played 16 true freshmen on the season.

One more win will put the Horns at six on the season and make them bowl eligible.

Kansas has former Cowboys coach Dave Campo as Defensive Coordinator.

Mack Brown says he’s tired of facing Heisman candidates!  Seth Doege and Collin Klein are still to come.

He has told his players not to be on Twitter or Facebook, not to watch Tv or read the newspaper, because of all of the criticism.
