Kansas was second in the poll, followed by Texas A&M, Oklahoma and Oklahoma State.
The last time the Tigers were picked eighth in the preseason poll was in 2007. They finished second that season and hosted an NCAA Regional. Mizzou was also picked eighth in the 2005 preseason poll and ended up taking fourth place that year.
