Oklahoma is a unanimous preseason pick to win the Big 12 once again. 

In a poll where a coach can't vote for their own team, the Sooners received all six votes from other coaches, while OU coach Patty Gasso voted for Baylor.

The Sooners have won seven straight regular season conference titles and this was the third-straight year where OU was a unanimous No. 1 among the coaches. Texas, which welcomes new coach Mike White from Oregon, was ranked second and Baylor took third.

Last year, OU became the second Big 12 team to finish conference play undefeated, but it was unable to win a third-straight Women's College World Series title, losing in the semifinals to Washington.
