Oregon and UC Davis headline the field that will play Monday through Tuesday at the Juli Inkster Spartan Invitational. The tournament, which is hosted by San Jose State, will be held at the Almaden Golf and Country Club in San Jose, Calif.

The field includes Boise State, Coastal Carolina, Colorado State, Cal State Fullerton, Fresno State, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon (No. 19), Portland State, San Francisco, San Jose State, Santa Clara and UC Davis (No. 36).

Oregon and UC Davis are the only teams in the field to be ranked in the top 50 in the Golfweek/Sagarin rankings.

Oregon set a program record for lowest tournament score (848) at its runner-up showing at the Westbrook Invitational last week. UC Davis' top showing this spring was a runner-up finish at the Peg Barnard Invitational.

The teams will play 36 holes Monday and 18 Tuesday. Stanford won the tournament last year, but will not compete in this year's field.
