St. Simons Island, Ga. – Junior Chad Ramey fired a 3-under-par 67 to move into a tie for second place heading into the final day of the SEC Men’s Golf Championship.

Ramey’s stellar round helped No. 25 Mississippi State to a second-straight 6-over-par 286 that kept the Bulldogs in sixth place.

State’s 12-over 572 through the opening 36 holes puts MSU 18 strokes back of tournament leader No. 30 South Carolina. First-round leader No. 19 Auburn fell to third following a 9-over-par second round.

 “We didn’t play quite as well today, even though we shot the same score as yesterday,” coach Clay Homan said. “We made a few costly mental errors, but we still competed and have a chance to have a solid finish tomorrow. The wind is forecasted to be high tomorrow, so a good round can go a long way on this course.”

Ramey, who finished tied for fifth on Friday, shot a 3-under-par 67 on Saturday to move into a tie for second.

“Chad is playing some fantastic golf,” Homan said. “He has put himself in contention to win an SEC Championship tomorrow.”

The Fulton, Miss., native, who has seven Top-10 finishes this season, enters Sunday five strokes back of USC’s Caleb Sturgeon.

He will be seeking a second-straight Top-10 showing at St. Simons Island after finishing seventh in last season’s championship.

Junior Axel Boasson and senior Robi Calvesbert each fired off a 4-over-par 74 on Saturday.

Boasson stands 22nd overall with a 144. Calvesbert’s two-round 148 is tied with seven others for 39th.

Junior Joe Sakulpolphaisan rebounded from a tough opening round to card a 1-over-par 71 performance. The Thailand native’s three birdies propelled him up the leader board 10 spots to 58th overall with an 11-over 151.

Junior Barrett Edens rounded out the Maroon and White scoring with a 6-over-par 76. The Okolona, Miss., native stands at 9-over 149 for the championship.

Homan’s squad will tee off at Hole No. 1 at 9:20 a.m. CT tomorrow. The Bulldogs will be paired with No. 21 Texas A&M and No. 13 Georgia for Sunday’s final round.
