Big 12 softball: Sooners top preseason coaches' poll, Cowgirls No. 3

Oklahoma was voted the unanimous favorite in the Big 12 preseason coaches' poll.

This marks the 11th time in the past 12 seasons the Sooners have topped the preseason poll. Oklahoma received six first place votes and a total of 36 points — coaches can not vote for their own team.

Oklahoma State came in third in the poll, receiving one first place vote and 27 total points.

The full poll results are as follows:

1. Oklahoma

2. Texas

3. Oklahoma State

4. Texas Tech

5. Baylor

6. Iowa State

7. Kansas

Both the Sooners and the Cowgirls made the Women's College World Series in 2019.

Oklahoma starts its season Feb. 6 against Nevada in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, and Oklahoma State opens its season on Feb. 7 against LSU in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
