Wednesday, July 21, 2010 | 6:40 p.m. CDT

DALLAS — The Missouri football team is predicted to finish second in the North Division of the Big 12 Conference in the league's preseason media poll.

Nebraska has been picked to lead the conference.

The Cornhuskers, who are bolting for the Big Ten in 2011, are the unanimous choice to repeat as Big 12 North champions, while Oklahoma was picked to win the South division in the poll released by the league on Wednesday.

Nebraska, which lost a heartbreaker to Texas in last year's Big 12 title game, received all 26 first-place votes from media members who cover the league. The Sooners got 16 first-place votes in the South, while the Longhorns received the other 10 votes.

Kansas State followed Missouri in the north, ahead of Kansas, Colorado and Iowa State. Texas A&M was picked to finish third in the South. Texas Tech, Oklahoma State and Baylor round out the South field.
