Big 12 stat check: Week 6

A closer look at one statistic worth keeping an eye on for each Big 12 team entering Week 6:

Baylor: Since defeating BCS No. 1 Kansas State at home on Nov. 17, 2012, Baylor's record of 19-2 is second-best in FBS behind Florida State (21-1). The Bears lead the nation in scoring offense, total offense, plays per game, first downs and yards per passing attempt during that 21-game stretch.

Iowa State: Tight end E.J. Bibbs' numbers seem way down, but they're relatively on pace with what he did last season. Bibbs has 11 receptions for 88 yards. and a TD today, and had 11 receptions for 105 yards and a TD through four games last season. Meniscus surgery during fall camp is the reason why the preseason All-Big 12 selection hasn't been a bigger factor. We should start seeing much more from him soon.

Kansas: One small reason for hope for new Kansas interim coach Clint Bowen: Of KU's 18 conference losses under Charlie Weis, the Jayhawks did hold a lead at some point in nine of those Big 12 games (including a 13-0 start vs. Oklahoma last season). But KU held a fourth-quarter lead in just one of those games, a 21-17 loss to Texas in 2012.

Kansas State: One thing K-State's defense is doing really well: Attacking the run game. The Wildcats are allowing 2.69 yards per carry this season, a rate that ranks 10th-best in FBS, and its total run defense (90.2 ypg) ranks 13th. Considering they faced an Auburn offense that's averaged 304.7 rushing yards in its other three games of 2014, that's pretty solid. Baylor and TCU are also in the top 10 for yards/rush defense.

Oklahoma: When the Sooners get close, they're getting the job done. Oklahoma has scored touchdowns on 100 percent of its goal-to-go situations this season and 79 percent of its trips to the red zone. Inside the red zone, Trevor Knight has turned the ball over just once (an interception vs. Louisiana Tech) and has taken one sack.

Oklahoma State: Through three games, Daxx Garman ranks No. 3 nationally in passing yards per completion at a whopping 18.96 yards. He's also ranked No. 7 in FBS in passing yards per attempt at 10.68. That's about as good a start as OSU could've asked for after losing J.W. Walsh.

TCU: The Horned Frogs outscored their non-conference opponents 73-7 in the first half this season. This team averaged 8.8 points per game in the first half last season but has scored 24 or more before halftime in all three of its games in 2014. None of those three foes were on Oklahoma's level, but it does appear TCU's new Air Raid is making this team better-equipped to put up points early.

Texas: The Longhorn defense has been stingy once opponents cross midfield. Its 3.38 yards per play allowed in those situations ranks No. 9 in FBS. Texas has nearly as many turnovers forced (six) as touchdowns allowed (seven) when opposing offenses have entered their territory.

Texas Tech: A few notes on the Red Raiders' problem with penalties: Tech has been flagged 150 times for 1,400 yards since the start of the 2013 season. No team has more penalty yards and only Baylor (154) has more penalties during that span. Texas Tech's 86 offensive penalties since Kliff Kingsbury took over is tied with Baylor for most in the country.

West Virginia: If the season ended today, WVU receiver Kevin White would have a legit case in the All-America discussion. He's the nation's second-leading receiver in yards per game (158.2) and ranks No. 3 in receptions per game (10.5). He's been so successful because he's caught 73.7 percent percent of passes thrown his way, a rate bested by only Alabama's Amari Cooper among wideouts with 500-plus receiving yards.
