Texas vs. Kansas 2012: TV schedule, game time, spread and more

Tim Heitman-US PRESSWIRE

Texas is a 23-point favorite on the road at Kansas this weekend.

There are really no such things as "breathers" in a major-conference football schedule, but the Texas Longhorns get the closest thing to a break in the schedule this week when they hit the road to face last-place Kansas on Saturday.

The Longhorns (5-2, 2-2) are coming off yet another shootout, a 56-50 win over Baylor to keep their slim Big 12 title hopes alive. Texas' disappointing defense has given up at least 30 points in six straight games and at least 40 in three straight games, including a 63-21 blowout loss to rival Oklahoma two weeks ago.The Longhorns still have games against Texas Tech, Iowa State, TCU and Kansas State left on their schedule.

The Jayhawks (1-6, 0-4) are fresh off their own blowout loss to the Sooners, 52-7 last weekend. They're 23-point underdogs at home on Saturday after losing their last six games. The team's one win was opening week against San Diego State.

Saturday's game between the Texas Longhorns and the Kansas Jayhawks in Lawrence, Kansas, kicks off at 11 a.m. CT and will be televised by FOX.
