Cowboy up: Oklahoma State played like the No. 1 team in the country, shooting 12-under 276 to take a four-shot lead. Oklahoma State’s Sean Einhaus, the team’s No. 4 player, led the team with a 66. All five Cowboys shot par or better, including Peter Uihlein (70) and Kevin Tway (72), who were in Texas earlier this week for the Hogan Award banquet. Uihlein, the reigning U.S. Amateur champion, won the award. Einhaus played in Oklahoma State’s lineup only twice this year but finished in the top 10 both times. This is his second sub-70 score in 10 rounds this year.

Dawgs down: Georgia, No. 12 in the Golfweek/Sagarin College Rankings, is in danger of missing the NCAA Championship for a second consecutive year. The Bulldogs are in 11th place after shooting 6-over 294. They had to count a 79 (both Hudson Swafford and Bryden Macpherson put up 79s).

Russell Henley, last year’s Golfweek College Player of the Year and recent winner of a Nationwide Tour event, shot 74. Georgia is five shots out of fifth place with two rounds remaining. T.J. Mitchell led the team with a 69 and is in fourth place. Henley advanced to the NCAAs as an individual last year after the team failed to advance out of regionals.
