The Sooners posted a 290 (+6) in Tuesday’s second round to bring their 36-hole total to 576 (+8).

“As poorly as we have played as a team, we still have a great chance to put together a great round tomorrow and move up the leaderboard,” OU head coach Ryan Hybl said.

With a 569 (+1), No. 16 LSU paces the 13-team field that features five squads ranked in the top 25 of GolfStat rankings. No. 8 Stanford holds second at 570 (+2), and No. 14 San Diego State and Iowa State share third, one stroke behind the Cardinal. The Sooners are tied with No. 5 Texas Tech.
