For the eighth time in 10 years, OU was predicted by media members to finish atop the Big 12 Conference in a 2020 preseason poll released Friday.

OU received 80 of 90 first-place votes for a total of 888 points while rival Oklahoma State finished second with six first-place votes and 742 points.

The Sooners own a Big 12-record 13 league titles, including the last five championships, and have been ranked No. 1 in the conference preseason poll eight times since 2011.

Barring any coronavirus-related cancellations, the top two finishers in the conference will face off in the Big 12 Championship on Sunday, Dec. 5, at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.
