CARROLLTON, Texas (Oct. 22, 2018) – There wasn’t enough light Monday to finish a 36-hole day at the Royal Oaks Intercollegiate, but there were more than enough holes for Oklahoma State to establish a nearly insurmountable lead.
The Cowboys, still on top after the latest coaches poll

At 12 under, Oklahoma State is 16 shots ahead of Arkansas, the next-best team. N.C. State is in third place at 6 over.

He leads N.C. State’s Stephen Franken by a shot. Wolff has won the individual in both of the team’s starts this fall.
Oklahoma State’s Viktor Hovland (3 under) and Hayden Wood (2 under) are also in the top 5.
