After a topsy-turvey first round, the waters calmed just a bit on the second day of the NCAA Division I Regionals, but it will be a restless night's sleep for a handful of teams that hope to keep their seasons alive with strong final rounds on Wednesday.

A sixth-seed (Michigan State) and an eighth-seed (North Carolina State) continue to lead the Palm Beach Gardens and Raleigh Regionals, while the surprise team of the tournament, Oregon State, a ninth-seed in the Westfield Regional, is currently running second to Mississippi State.

Stanford and Rose Zhang continue to take advantage of friendly scoring conditions in the Pacific Northwest where the Cardinal are 35-under at the Pullman Regional. Another top-seed, Texas A&M, is taking care of business at the San Antonio Regional.

Wake Forest, the top-ranked team in the nation as listed by Golfweek/Sagarin, righted its ship today in Raleigh where the Demon Deacons moved inside the cutline with a 3-under round at Lonnie Poole Golf Course.

LSU, the third-ranked team in the nation and top-seed at Palm Beach Gardens, find themselves five shots off the cutline heading into Wednesday's final round. Barring a lights-out final round, Oregon, last year's national runner-up is also in danger of seeing its season come to an end at the Westfield Regional.

Here's a second rounds breakdown from the six regional sites around the country.
