The Roadrunners entered the final round in a tie with Lamar for fifth place and they carded a 296 to finish at 16-over-par 880, just two strokes behind No. 37 Baylor (878) and four back of the Cardinals (876) and ahead of Texas State (885), Sam Houston State (890), Stephen F.

Brett Hogan (70-76-76—222) and Ryan Werre (72-72-78—222) finished one shot back of Lindsey in a tie for 23rd, while Stanton Tondre tied for 46th (73-78-76—227).
No. 33 Houston shot a five-under 859 to win the team crown ahead of 35th-ranked Oklahoma (867) and Central Arkansas (869).
UCA's James Newton followed his 70 and 65 from Friday with a 74 to finish at seven-under 209 to win the individual title.
