Texas 5th and OU holds the top spot.

2016 Big 12 Football Media Preseason Poll

1. Oklahoma (24) 258
2. TCU (2) 222
3. Oklahoma State 202
4. Baylor 156
5. Texas 151
6. Texas Tech 141
7. West Virginia 126
8. Kansas State 88
9. Iowa State 59
10. Kansas 27

first-place votes in parenthesis

OU and TCU make sense at the top, but 24 of 26 first place votes for the Sooners feels a tad groupthink.  OSU returns a ton of experience.  Baylor's ranking depends heavily on morale and the Bears being able to field anything on the DL.

KSU tends to surprise when underrated.  Let's see what the Eggplant Sorcerer has in store.
