The Rebels held the 18-hole lead and still led after nine holes, but surrendered the lead to Tennessee on the back nine with six double-bogeys. At 295-293—588, Ole Miss stands four back of the Volunteers, who rebounded from an opening 301 to shoot 283 for a 584 total. Alabama is in second at 586, and Florida is tied with Ole Miss.
"We stumbled a little on the back nine and lost some of our opportunities," head coach Ernest Ross said. "I told our team we are going to look forward not backward. We are close to the lead, and we have a great chance if we play well tomorrow. We are going to forget about what didn't happen right today and immediately turn our focus to the opportunity we have tomorrow."
Sophomore Will Roebuck, who had the only round under par yesterday with his 69, shot a 5-over 75 Saturday, and is tied for second going into the final round. Senior Callum Macaulay came back with a second-round 71 to go with his 75 and is tied for ninth.
Junior David Marino at 75-73—148 is tied for 15th, and senior Chris Rogers is tied for 22nd at 76-74—150.
The Rebels will tee off in the second to last group tomorrow, which Ross said may help his team.
"Sometimes it's better to not be in the last group, because the leaders tend to watch each other. "Hopefully we can get out there and post a good score and sit back and watch what happens."
