Nebraska has been picked to leave the Big 12 in style.

The Cornhuskers, who are bolting for the Big Ten in 2011, are the unanimous choice to repeat as Big 12 North champions in the league's preseason media poll.

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.

Missouri was picked second in the North, followed by Kansas State, 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.
