Texas has been beating one Big 12 opponent after the other, winning
four in a row since falling to BYU and Ole Miss.
The Big 12 has four teams in the Top 20 of the BCS standings but the
Longhorns, who are 4-0 in conference play this year, are not among
them. Yet they control their own destiny. If they win their final five
regular season games, they'll capture their first Big 12 title since
2009 and their third conference championship under head coach Mack
"I don't think we have even scratched the surface of how good this
team can be," Brown said. "We had two interceptions at the end of the
[TCU] game that we have got to get rid of. We had too many negative
runs against TCU that put is in third-and-long way too many times. We
had the trick play fool us. We aren't returning kickoffs like we
Brown went on to cite kickoff coverage as another problem that needs
fixing, although the Longhorns have blown out teams that were favored
to beat them in each of their last two games. Texas took down
Oklahoma, 36-20, earlier this month before blowing out TCU, 30-7, in
Fort Worth this past weekend.
Texas is a four-touchdown favorite this week against Kansas but, after
hitting the road to face West Virginia, has three tough games to close
out its regular season against Oklahoma State, Texas Tech and Baylor.
While Brown would obviously like for his Longhorns to win out and
finish the regular season 10-2, he doesn't believe their chances to
win the Big 12 are gone if they suffer another defeat.
"I feel like there could be a one-loss team win this league," Brown
said. "This league is setting up to be fun to watch here at the end.
Everybody is about to start running into each other here and it is
going to be exciting games here each week."
Oklahoma State faces Texas Tech in this week's marquee Big 12 matchup
while unbeaten Baylor is set to take on Oklahoma, who handed the Red
Raiders their first loss of the season last weekend, next Saturday.
The Longhorns begin their three-game gauntlet the following weekend.
