Several other Big 12 teams are doing well after the first round.

In the Stillwater regional, Baylor leads by a shot over Clemson, with Oklahoma State four shots back.

Texas, meanwhile, is second in Albuquerque, three shots behind Oregon, while TCU is tied for fourth in the same regional. Oklahoma is in ninth place in Albuquerque.
