Three conference teams (Texas, Texas A&M and Kansas) opened their 2012 season sweeping their three games last weekend. Texas and Texas A&M tied for the conference regular-season title last season and are both expected to be prime contenders this season. Kansas, meanwhile, finished in the cellar in the league standings a year ago, with an overall record of 26-30 and 9-18, the exact opposite of the Aggies and Longhorns, in Big 12 play.

Overall, Big 12 teams went 18-10 in their opening weekend, and 37 more games are scheduled for this weekend. Baylor, Texas and Texas Tech have games against ranked opponents.

Four teams from the conference are ranked in the top 25 in the country in the national college baseball polls this week. Texas A&M ranks in the top ten in all four of the polls; Texas' highest ranking is seventh by Collegiate Baseball; Oklahoma ranks as high as No. 17, and Baylor is No, 25 in the Baseball America poll.
