NORMAN, Okla. The Oklahoma men’s golf squad seeks a second-straight top-10 finish of the season as it competes in the Boilermaker Invitational April 7-8, held in West Lafayette, Ind., on the par-72, 7,382-yard Kampen course.

The Sooners will battle the cold as the weekend forecast calls for temperatures in the 30s with a chance snow.

The 15-team field, featuring Auburn (ranked 24th in Golf World’s latest top-25 ranking), will play 36 holes Saturday and return for the final round of action on Sunday. Play begins Saturday with an 8 a.m. (CST) shotgun start and continues Sunday at 7 a.m. (CST).
