3. Texas (4-1, 1-1 Big 12): The Texas defensive line got after WVU's Smith and sacked him four times, but the run defense struggled for the second straight week, giving up 207 yards to Andrew Buie. The Horns continue to look impressive on offense, but their defense needs to improve. Even with the struggles on defense, this is by far the best team Texas has had since Colt McCoy graduated.

Why not give the Heisman to a defensive player? [Yahoo Sports]

This is just creepy. [Tulsa World]

The deal was called Gift of a Lifetime - meaning literally. Each of the 28 partners had allowed the school to take out a $10 million insurance policy on his or her life, with the annual premiums to be paid by Oklahoma State, Bloomberg Businessweek reports in its Oct. 8 edition.

The deal cost donors nothing, and in return, they received a bronze statue of the school mascot, Pistol Pete; a plaque on the side of the stadium and the knowledge that their deaths would enrich the school they loved.

Kudos to the web designers. Simple site, clean design, concise message. [Fire Pinkel]

Stay classy, SEC. [CBS Sports]

And finally...

Thank you to Oklahoma and Rhett Bomar for the memories.
