The Oklahoma State football team is ranked 14th in the preseason USA Today Coaches Poll released today. The Cowboys are the top-ranked team from the Big 12, trailed by Texas at No. 15, Oklahoma at No. 16 and TCU at No. 20.

Tabbed as the preseason Big 12 favorite by the media, the Cowboys return 20 starters from last year’s team, which tied for third place in the Big 12 and trampled Purdue, 58-14 in the Heart of Dallas Bowl. Key returnees include the Big 12’s leading returning receiver, Josh Stewart, the 2012 Big 12 Defensive Newcomer of the Year Calvin Barnett and linebacker Shaun Lewis, all of whom were recognized as 2013 preseason first-team All-Big 12 selections.

OSU has been a fixture in the preseason USA Today Coaches Poll in recent years, ranked No. 11 in 2009, No. 8 in 2011 and No. 19 last season.
