Numbers, it's said, rarely lie. With that thought in mind, HornsNation -- with a healthy assist from the ESPN Stats and Info crew -- will dig into the numbers each week and pull three stats that could play a significant role in the outcome of Texas' game. This week, Kansas, a team winless in the Big 12, is in the spotlight.

1. 12-of-15
Texas has allowed it opponents to convert on 12-of-15 fourth downs. That’s 80 percent. And it’s even worse in Big 12 play. Opponents have gone for it on fourth down nine times against Texas and made it all nine times. Perhaps the most damaging were the five fourth downs converted by West Virginia.
