UT Arlington shot a 10-over-par 294 in the first round and followed up it with a plus-11 in the afternoon. The Mavericks' position is the team's highest after two rounds during the fall season. UTA trails tournament host New Mexico State by 17 strokes.

"He shot a 68 with no bogeys," UT Arlington coach Jay Rees said of Gosling. "It was the first time he's ever done that in competition. I'm very proud of his effort. He's getting better every time he competes."
The third and final round is Tuesday, with a shotgun start at 9 a.m. CT.
