NORMAN, Okla. — Oklahoma landed in another Top 25 baseball poll. 

Baseball America has the Sooners at No. 19 with the season less than a month away. 

Other Big 12 teams in the poll are No. 6 Texas Tech and No. 16 Oklahoma State. 

OU returns top pitchers Levi Prater and Cade Cavalli, and three of its top four hitters from a year ago. That team finished 33-23 overall and 11-13 in the Big 12, missing the NCAA postseason. 

The Sooners' season begins Feb. 14 with three games against Virginia in the Wahoos Classic in Pensacola, Florida.
