TCU, dead last entering the second round, moved into contention Wednesday at the NCAA golf championship in Milton, Ga., as sophomore Julien Brun matched the low round of the day with a 6-under 64.

The Horned Frogs are tied for 15th after an 8-under 272, the third best score of the day. TCU is 6 over for the tournament at 566.

Anders Albertson shot a 3-under 67 to help Georgia Tech top the team leader board, and Arizona State freshman Jon Rahm followed his opening 61 with a 72 to remain in front with one round left in the individual competition.

Georgia Tech had its second straight 6-under 274 to reach 12 under. California was a stroke back, and defending champion Texas followed at 10 under. The top eight schools after the third round Thursday will advance to team match play.

Alabama was fourth at 9 under, followed by Arkansas and Illinois at 3 under, first-round leader Arizona State at 2 under and Texas A&M at even par. Oklahoma was bidding for a top-eight spot at 2 over.

Brun, at 2-under 138, is tied for 24th place. Daniel Jennevret is at 2-over 142 after a 70, Eli Cole (68) and Pontus Gad (70) are at 144 and Paul Barjon at 146.

Paterno suit

The estate of the late Penn State coach Joe Paterno and several university trustees and former players plan to sue the NCAA over the landmark sanctions against the university for the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal.

The Paterno family’s attorney, Wick Sollers, said on the NBC Sports Network’s Costas Tonight that former coaches and faculty members are part of the suit.

The suit would ask for the sanctions and agreement between school and the NCAA to be deemed unlawful and the penalties overturned, he said. “The broader goal is to get the truth out,” Sollers said.
