Rising to the challenge each and every year, the Oklahoma Sooners claimed four consecutive conference championships. In the 2019 Big 12 Preseason Media Poll, the program found themselves collecting an overwhelming number of first place votes. Remaining nine votes shy of becoming the unanimous pick, the Sooners earned the label of ‘favorites’ yet again.

Returning 14 starters from last season, Oklahoma received a total of 761 points alongside 68 first place votes in the preseason poll. The number outpaced the Texas Longhorns grand total of 696 which included the unaccounted for nine first place votes. While a majority of the returning starters are on the defensive side of the ball, it’s hard to underestimate the coaching abilities of Lincoln Riley on the other side of the equation.

The season begins on Sunday, September 1 when the Houston Cougars head to Gaylord Memorial Stadium for a highly anticipated clash.
