The pressure is on now! With two potential first-round draft picks taking the mound and a solid nucleus of senior leaders, Sunny Galloway's squad was picked by the conference coaches as the preseason favorites to win the Big 12.
The Sooners received six of nine possible first place votes by the conference coaches with the other three going to the TCU Horned Frogs. Rounding out the top four in the conference were Texas and Baylor. Of the three teams directly behind them, Oklahoma will play two of them on the road this season.
