Rowland will not be available to run on Saturday in the 4x100 relay.
Joanna Atkins made a strong start in the women's 400 race she won at least year's NCAA meet, but faded down the stretch to finish third with a time of 52.01.
"I felt good in warm-ups," Atkins said. "I did pretty well coming out of the blocks, but I talked to my coach and he said I ran the first 200 too hard and then the headwind pretty much killed me. But I gave it a good fight, I worked hard, I kept pushing and even though I'm not happy with my time but it was the best I could give today."
Also scoring for the Auburn women was junior Sheniqua Ferguson, who finished sixth in the 100 meters with a time of 11.32. Ferguson, the NCAA indoor 200 champ, will compete in that event on Saturday.
The Auburn men's team has three points and tied for 43rd. Texas A&M leads with 46 points and Florida is second with 28 points.
