The Nebraska softball team was picked to finish eighth in the ten team Big 12 Conference preseason poll. Coaches picked Oklahoma to win the league ahead of 2010 Women’s College World Series qualifier Missouri and 2010 regular-season conference champion Texas.
Rounding out the league…league are Texas A&M, Oklahoma State, Baylor, Texas Tech, NU, Iowa State and Kansas.
Nebraska, which finished last season in a tie for sixth place, but made a postseason appearance has never been picked to finish lower than sixth in the coaches’ preseason poll. The conference should bring back some pretty solid competition after seven of the ten teams played in postseason last year.
