With plenty of pitching, Big 12 should be strong again

FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) - TCU, Texas Tech and Texas all made it to the College World Series last season. Oklahoma State also hosted an NCAA super regional after winning its first Big 12 regular season title.

They are all preseason top 10 teams and could be in position to go deep again this season.

Texas Tech coach Tim Tadlock says pitching is at the forefront of the league.

Consider preseason Big 12 favorite TCU, where Brandon Finnegan went from pitching in the College World Series for the Horned Frogs to four months later being on the mound for the Kansas City Royals in the World Series. The Frogs still have two-time league ERA champ Preston Morrison and closer Riley Ferrell, considered by many the top college prospect in the next draft.
