AUSTIN, Texas (AP) -- The battle for Big 12 supremacy starts in the South -- again.
Three of the Big 12's four teams in The Associated Press preseason rankings are in the South Division, which has produced the league champion seven times in the league's first 11 seasons.
If the rankings hold true to form, expect the No. 4 Texas Longhorns or No. 8 Oklahoma Sooners to win the division -- again.
And should either of them manage to go undefeated and win the conference title, it could earn a chance to play for the national championship.
Nebraska is the only North Division team in the rankings at No. 20. The Cornhuskers won the division last season but lost to the Sooners in the conference title game.
Texas A&M rounds out the top 25 at No. 25.
