The Big 12 coaches don't have a lot of faith that Mike Anderson can turn things around in Nebraska's final Big 12 season, picking the Huskers to finish eighth this season. That's a little lower than the projected sixth-place finish from baseball pundits Eric Sorenson and William Knox.
Oklahoma is in first with Texas a close second, followed by Texas A&M. Those are the three Big 12 teams ranked in preseason polls.
The coaches obviously expect Oklahoma State to have a much better year, projecting them at sixth after last year's last place finish.
