• LOOKING FOR BACK-TO-BACK ROAD WINS AGAINST THE TOP 10: Prior to this week, the Horns had never played back-to-back true road games against AP Top 10 opponents.

• FELIX RETURNS TO FORM: Senior guard Javan Felix posted a game-high 17 points (2-of-3 threes, 7-of-8 FT) in Wednesday's win at No. 6 West Virginia. Felix ranks second on the team in scoring (11.1 ppg) while hitting 41.5 percent (34-of-82) from three-point range on the year.

• PROTECTING THE ROCK: Texas has committed just 27 total turnovers (6.8 tpg) in its last four contests entering Saturday's game at No. 3/3 Kansas. The Horns had 6 turnovers at TCU, 5 in the OT win against No. 17/18 Iowa State, 8 vs. Oklahoma State and 8 at No. 6/7 West Virginia on Wednesday night.
