In a minor upset, 10th-ranked Oregon cruised past No. 1 Texas and No. 14 Texas A&M for an 11-shot victory at The Aggie Invitational on the par-72 Traditions Golf Club in Bryan, Texas.

The Ducks led wire-to-wire, leading the host Aggies by two shots after Round 1, increasing that lead to six after Round 2 and then using a 3-under 357 to cap off the impressive road victory.

It was Oregon's sixth tournament win of the season, as well as its third victory in its past four starts.

Texas - playing without top-ranked Jordan Spieth, who was playing the PGA Tour's Valero Texas Open - and Texas A&M both finished at 40 over.

New Mexico's Victor Perez fired a final-round, 3-under 69 to move past Oregon's Daniel Miernicki for the individual title. Texas' Toni Hakula and Oregon's Eugene Wong finished T-3, five shots back of Perez.
