Cowboy Down

USC men's golf will host the NCAA Championships next week at historic Riviera Country Club.  Click here for tournament info.

The Trojans will be making their sixth consecutive trip to the NCAA Tournament, which ranks third among active streaks.  At present, Florida (12) and UCLA (10) are the only schools atop USC.

All three programs were miles behind Oklahoma State until this year.  The Cowboys saw their streak of 65 consecutive NCAA Tournament appearances end last week in Ann Arbor, MI, at the NCAA Regionals, which were won by USC.

Without 10-time national champion Oklahoma State in the field, USC's toughest competition is expected to come from OSU's southern neighbors Texas.  The Longhorns are the No. 1 team in the country, while the Trojans rank seventh.

USC men's golf is one of only two current Trojan men's programs without a national team championship in its history.  On home soil next week and without a clear favorite, Chris Zambri's deep and talented squad could make things interesting for the locals.

2011 FedEx Cup champion Hunter Mahan played at both USC and Oklahoma State.
