The 2011 NCAA golf championships have reached the match play round, with the top eight teams advancing. The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets (11-over), who finished first in each of the tournament's first two rounds, wound up second to the UCLA Bruins (8-over) after a rough Friday, but they're still comfortably in. Also repping the Peach State are the No. 5 Georgia Bulldogs (20-over) and defending champ Augusta State Jaguars (24-over), No. 7.
The Kennesaw St. Owls won't be joining their statemates after taking a dip out of the Round 1 top 10 and holding steady at No. 26.
Match play begins at 11 am ET at Karsten Creek in Stillwater, Oklahoma, with UCLA taking on the No. 8 Duke Blue Devils (25-over). I believe the Dawgs get the No. 4 Oklahoma St. Cowboys (15-over) next, followed by Tech against Augusta State and the No. 3 Illinois Fighting Illini (15-over) against the No. 6 Ohio St. Buckeyes (23-over), but obviously Illinois and Okie State tied so they could be flip-flopped -- I typed this all last night! Check the official site to make sure.
The winners will advance to Saturday's semifinals.
