Fishburn birdied three holes on the final day to finish just one shot behind North Florida's Travis Trace, who won the individual title with a 70-70-65-205 (-11). Their fourth-place finish in the ASU Thunderbird Invitational was their "worst" of the season, and they were runners-up to their rivals Oklahoma in the Big 12 Conference Championship.

"This week sort of feels like PGA Tour school".

"Paul and Griffin really played well for us this week", said Owen.

Baylor clinched a spot in the NCAAs for a third consecutive season by finishing third in the 13-team field at the Bryan (Texas) Regional.

Ogletree wound up in a tie for 16th place at 212 (-4), Norton and Petefish tied for 26th at 211 (-2), and Schniederjans tied for 32nd place at 212 (-1).

UNLV was led by freshman Garrick Higgo who tied for 10th at 1-over 214.

Baylor sophomore Cooper Dossey and senior Matthew Perrine both shot 1-under 71 in the final round to top the Bears.

A pair of top-20s: Miller's birdie run to end the day landed him a tied for 16th finish at 3-over for the week. Young had the best score of the Deacons on Wednesday with a 69, Gillam shot 72, and McBride finished with a 73. UF finished the three-day event a program-record 42-under par 822 total on the 7,145-yard, par-72 layout.

Freshman Alex Shead shot his second straight even-par 71 for the Jaguars and is tied for 33rd (E), while sophomore Gustav Andersson and freshmen Laken Hinton and Olof Gunnarsson picked up a few strokes in round two. Bailey shot a 73 and a pair of 72s.

Texas A&M's Chandler Phillips and Brandon Smith remain atop the player leaderboard.

Despite advancing and playing well overall, McGraw said he believes his team can still be better. "I've never coached a player so committed to being his best. There was no choking going on, which I was very happy with, and it was good to see them play well on a week when there are a lot of good teams here".

BYU's men golf team advances to the NCAA Championships, along with top-five finishers No. 3 Oklahoma (850), No. 27 North Florida (851), No. 10 Auburn (861) and No. 15 Arkansas (861).
