It was moving day at the six regional sites around the country, where most of the high seeds are holding steady in their attempt to finish in the top-five and punch their tickets to the National Championships in a few weeks at Grayhawk Golf Club.

Stanford and Arkansas continue to hit the accelerator in the Las Vegas and Salem Regionals, where the two schools are a combined 71-under with a round remaining.

In contrast, Mississippi State and Auburn are the only two teams under par at the Morgan Hill and Auburn Regionals.

SEC teams Texas A&M (Salem), Tennessee (Auburn) and Florida (Bath) continue to struggle, while Mid-American champion Northern Illinois is hanging onto the fifth spot in Salem. Eighth-seed Chattanooga is running strong Auburn, as is Big Ten upstart Michigan State, which currently holds the fifth spot in the Bath Regional as the 10th-seed.

Here's a second round recap from the six regional sites around the country:

The Institute Golf Club; Morgan Hill, Calif.
The Institute Golf Club in Morgan Hill continues to take no prisoners, where only Mississippi State (-2) is in red numbers after two rounds of play. How hard did the course play on Tuesday? Baylor turned in the low round of the day at 6-over while Charlotte, which began the day tied for fourth at 3-under, nose-dived to 12th place after a 29-over round of 317. BYU used an 8-over round to jump into the fifth spot at 8-over, five strokes clear of Cal at 13-over.
