Oklahoma and Texas tied in Big 12 preseason poll

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Oklahoma or Texas in the Big 12 South? Both for now.

The Sooners and Longhorns are tied for the top spot in the preseason poll determined from a media vote. Texas got 17 first-place votes and Oklahoma got the other 15, but both had the same number of poll points.

Nebraska is favored in the North Division.

The Cornhuskers, who have won the North only once since taking 3 of the first four titles by 1999, finished coach Bo Pelini's first season with four consecutive victories.

Oklahoma quarterback Sam Bradford, the Heisman Trophy winner last season, was picked as the preseason offensive player of the year. Nebraska tackle Ndamukong Suh (en-DAHM'-eh-ken SOO) is the top defensive player.
