"The guys played really well again," BYU men's golf coach Bruce Brockbank said. "Justin and Joe started great and got going with birdies. We're right in contention. We get to play with the top teams and hopefully we can play through the tough holes tomorrow. We're looking forward to it."
The Cougars finished six-under-par for the day, seven-under for the tournament, to trail No. 4-ranked California by nine strokes entering Friday's final round. BYU is tied with No. 12 Texas A&M in second place, while No. 21 New Mexico is eight strokes off the Cougars' pace in fourth overall at one-over-par.
Keiley leads the tournament individually at 10-under-par with a season-best, six-under-par 66 in the second round. He takes a four-stroke lead ahead of California's Joel Stalter into the final round after finishing with eight birdies on the day.
Parkinson improved six places to move into a tie for fourth at four-under-par after day two of the 17-team tournament. He added seven more birdies in round two with a score of three-under 69.
