Big 12 by the numbers: Week 14

11/30/2011

Here's the story of the Big 12 this week, as told by calculators.

75.5: Fewer yards per game given up by Texas than any team in the Big 12. The Longhorns rank ninth nationally. Oklahoma is No. 2 in the Big 12 — and ranks 52nd.

1: Big 12 running back with more rushing yards in conference games than Missouri's Henry Josey, who has missed the last two-plus games with a knee injury. That would be Baylor's Terrance Ganaway.

0: Big 12 teams in the national top 25 in blocked punts or kicks. Kansas State and Missouri lead the Big 12 with three.

390.1: Average total offense, in yards, per game for Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin III, 19.1 more yards than any player in the Big 12.

22: Rushing touchdowns in conference games for Kansas State quarterback Collin Klein, more than any player in the nation.

0: FBS teams that have given up fewer sacks than Oklahoma, which has allowed just six this season.

1: Big 12 team that played more than six home games this season. (Texas A&M, with seven.)

2: Big 12 teams with a turnover margin of better than plus-2. Oklahoma State is plus-16. Kansas State is plus-11.

1: Big 12 player with more career kick returns for a touchdown than OSU return man Justin Gilbert's four. Gilbert is a sophomore and returned a kick for a score against Oklahoma last year.

6: More field goals than any Big 12 kicker for Lou Groza Award candidate kicker Randy Bullock of Texas A&M.

49.5: Percent of Texas LB Emmanuel Acho's 105 tackles this season that have come in the past four games.

2: Big 12 kickers without a missed PAT this season. (Donnie Carona, Texas Tech; Justin Tucker, Texas)
