The No. 15 Texas Longhorns (8-2, 5-2) enter a bye week after matching their win total from last season. And with two games to go, the Horns are in a position to really do some BCS damage late in the season.
Winners of four straight contests, Texas is fielding its best product at the best time.
After some easy early-season wins, the Longhorns were kind of an unknown until losing in the ugliest fashion against Oklahoma.
Seemingly humbled by the 63-21 beatdown, which was even worse than what the score suggests, Texas has rebounded nicely. The Longhorns had allowed almost 50 points per game in their first four conference games. But in their last three, they have given up just over 15 points per game.
Granted, the competition was much less impressive, but the miscues that plagued the Longhorns early in the season have shrunk considerably.
In their second bye week, Texas looks to freshen up before buckling down to face the front of its final two games against TCU and No. 1 Kansas State.
Here are 10 things to improve during the week off.
