AUSTIN -- Bronson Burgoon fired a two-under-par 70 on Monday to lead No. 12-ranked Texas A&M into second place after the first round of the Morris Williams Intercollegiate at Austin Country Club.

No. 10 UNLV (288) is in third, followed by Oklahoma (291), TCU (292), Tulsa (293), No. 14 BYU (293), No. 3 Oklahoma State (295), No. 22 Texas (296), Purdue (297), Texas Tech (297), New Mexico (304), No. 25 Auburn (304) and New Mexico State (316).

Kent State's David Ludlow leads the individual standings by two shots after firing a six-under 66. Purdue's Vince Nadeau is in second at 68. Burgoon leads a group of four players who shot 70. A&M freshman Austin Schauer, competing as an individual, fired a one-under 71 and is tied for seventh.

A&M's Trey Todd and Bobby Gates are tied for ninth after carding even-par 72s, while Matt Van Zandt is tied for 19th (73) and Martin Piller is tied for 37th (75).
