THE WOODLANDS, Texas – Call it a lucky seventh for the Arkansas men's team.

The Razorbacks, No. 10 in the Golfweek/Sagarin College Rankings, won their seventh team title of the season – barely – edging 31st-ranked North Texas by a shot Tuesday at The Woodlands All-American Intercollegiate.

Arkansas, which led North Texas by four strokes after 36 holes, shot a final-round 3-under 285 and finished with a 23-under 841 total to the Mean Green's 282-842 on the Tournament Course at The Woodlands Country Club. Texas A&M (845), ranked No. 15, finished third, followed by two more Texas teams in SMU (857) and Baylor (861).

Three Razorbacks – Sebastian Cappelen, Kolton Crawford and Thomas Sorensen – tied for third at 6-under 210. Texas A&M's Geoff Shaw won the individual title with rounds of 69-67-69 for an 11-under 205 total, two shots ahead of Curtis Donahoe of North Texas.
