BATON ROUGE, La. -- On Friday, the Tennessee men's golf team fell to 7th place after two rounds at the NCAA Men's Golf Regional.

The Vols were in great position after finishing a solid first round on Thursday. However, UT now has their work cut out for them after carding a second round of 304. Currently, the Vols two day total is 300-304--604 (+28).

The Vols will need a big push Saturday to finish in the top-5 of the regional. The top five teams from the Baton Rouge Regional site advance to the NCAA Championships in Atlanta, Ga.

For the second consecutive day, Oliver Goss leads the Volunteers at the Baton Rouge University Club Golf Course. Through two rounds at the NCAA Regional, Goss currently sits tied for seventh after carding a 73-73--146 (+2). Goss has been the model of consistency connecting seven birdies through 36 holes of golf.

The rest of head coach Jim Kelson's starting lineup featured Jay Vandeventer shooting a 75-76--151 (+7) including four birdies, Rick Lamb (+10), Michael Nagy (+11), and Thomas Dunne (+14).

The University of Florida has been atop the NCAA Regional standings since the tournament began. The University of Alabama sits eight strokes behind in second place of team play. In addition, the Gators have the top-3 golfers in the individual competition.

On Saturday, Tennessee will start their third and final round at 7:30 a.m. CT from the 10th hole tee box. Tennessee will be paired with Northwestern and UAB.
