Ninth-seeded Ohio State, which started the second round in ninth place, moved into a tie for third through eight holes. The Buckeyes were 2 under as a team.
Playing as an individual, Marquette senior Mike Van Sickle made four birdies and an eagle through 16 holes. He moved from a tie for 11th into a tie for third. Van Sickle has won five events this season.
