The top-seeded Stanford men's golf team briefly lost its four-stroke lead to Oklahoma midway through Friday's round at Eugene (Oregon) Country Club.

But the Cardinal regrouped to post a 2-over 282 for a seven-shot advantage over the Sooners heading into the final round of the NCAA Eugene Regional Championships.

Patrick Rodgers separated himself from the field with a 3-under 67, dipping to 7-under through 36 holes and a six-shot lead over Oregon's Zach Foushee, UT-Chattanooga's Chris Robb and teammate Cameron Wilson.

A win will tie Rodgers with Tiger Woods with a school-record 11 career victories. Stanford could earn its fourth straight victory and sixth in 11 tournaments on the season.

Rodgers had two birdies on the front and a pair on the back with a bogey on the par-4, 424-yard 11th hole his only blemish.

San Jose State's Cody Blick shot a 74 in the second round and moved up eight spots into a tie for 46th place. With 18 holes to play, Blick has a 10-over 150 total.
