Additionally, the Cougars will be competing against Auburn, Arkansas, Florida State, North Florida, fellow WCC foe Pepperdine, Virginia, San Diego State, Nevada, Sam Houston State, Missouri-Kansas City, Navy and Prairie View A&M.

Stars for the Cougars include WCC Player of the Year winner, senior Patrick Fishburn and sophomore Rhett Rasmussen.

While Utah men’s golf did not qualify for the field, the Utes’ Blake Tomlinson scored an individual berth in the Stockton regional hosted by another of BYU’s WCC rivals, Pacific.

Tomlinson is the fifth seed and will be attempting to supplant top overall seed Carl Yuan of Pac-12 rival Washington.
