titles, including the last three.
OU garnered 46 of the 52 first-place votes.
West Virginia was chosen second with TCU, Texas and Oklahoma
State rounding out the top five. The Mountaineers received two
first-place nods while TCU and UT had one each. Kansas State was
predicted to finish sixth, claiming two first-place votes followed by
