The Big 12's marquee games this fall have finished with scores like 62-52, 50-39 and 49-42, with critics of the league's defensive aptitude coming out in force as a result. A deeper look inside the numbers suggests the criticism is overblown.

The Big 12 also issued a public reprimand for Kansas players Joe Dineen, Dorance Armstrong Jr., Jeremiah Booker, and Daniel Wise for refusing to shake hands with Mayfield. Big 12 commissioner Bob Bowlsby, in a statement: “The refusal of these student-athletes to shake an opponent's hand during the pre-game ceremony is contrary to tradition and inconsistent with common courtesy. The pre-game handshake among team captains is symbolic of good sportsmanship. This breach of protocol is not in keeping with the standards of the Big 12 Conference. I am grateful for the work of the Kansas administration and coaches to resolve this matter.”

The Big 12 has issued a public reprimand of Oklahoma QB Baker Mayfield. Big 12 commissioner Bob Bowlsby, in a statement: “Mr. Mayfield's actions are unacceptable and should not be tolerated. I am grateful for the efficient management of this matter by the coaches and administration of the University of Oklahoma. Baker Mayfield is a truly outstanding competitor and I generally appreciate his style of play and the manner in which he competes. However, the behavior he exhibited on the sideline during the Oklahoma-Kansas game was inappropriate and contrary to our sportsmanship policies.”
