Big 12 roundtable: What's at stake in Week 5?

Several Big 12 teams (K-State, West Virginia, Texas) have a lot to gain this week, but ESPN's Big 12 writers agree that Oklahoma has the most to lose.

ESPN Stats & Info

Only a few easy games left for Texas

No. 22 Texas has less than a 50 percent chance to win in four of its five games in October, according to ESPN's FPI. In November, three of the Horns' four games project as nearly a coin flip.

Texas a tempting road underdog

The No. 21 ranked Longhorns are still motivated from a loss to California two weeks ago. ESPN's Phil Steele likes their history against Oklahoma State in Stillwater. Week 5 best bets (Insider)

How does DC Vance Bedford adjust expectations for playing defense when Texas has an offense averaging 47 points? Bedford says it's all about two key stats: points per drive and turnovers. The Longhorns rank 9th in the Big 12 and 92nd nationally in points/drive (2.3) and have yet to grab an interception.

Texas DC Vance Bedford says he takes full responsibly for his defense's problems against Cal. He believes he and Charlie Strong are on the same page about their defense. "There's a trust factor. We've been together now 8 years, I believe. We know we need to get things cleaned up and get some things done, it's just that simple."

Jake Trotter ESPN Staff Writer 

Saturday's matchup between Oklahoma State and Texas figures to be a massive swing game for both teams. Oklahoma State has never started out 2-3 under Mike Gundy. Texas is currently an FPI in three of its next four games, not including its trip to Stillwater.

Texas OL Perkins out 1 game after DWI arrest

Texas starting offensive lineman Kent Perkins will serve a one-game suspension following his arrest last week on a charge of driving while intoxicated, Longhorns coach Charlie Strong announced.

Max Olson ESPN Staff Writer 

Texas coach Charlie Strong said after a week of "self-evaluation," he determined he did not need to make any staff changes. Defensive coordinator Vance Bedford is still running his defense. Strong said he has faith in Bedford and didn't think a coordinator change would accomplish much.

Max Olson ESPN Staff Writer 

Texas starting OG Kent Perkins received a one-game suspension for his DWI arrest last week and will receive counseling, perform community service and face further internal discipline. He'll miss the Longhorns' game against Oklahoma State this week.
