The Golden Bears were atop the leaderboard at 589 (+13), thanks to a team score of 283 (-5) and the Buffaloes were stampeding at their heels in second place at 592 (+16), the beneficiaries of a second round score of 284 (-4). UCLA was third at 594 (+18) improving with a team score of 290 (+2). USC was fourth at 595 (+19) and ASU was fifth at 597 (+21).

Junior Tiffany Lua enjoyed the most improvement, chopping six strokes off her opening round and carding a one-under par 71. She was tied for seventh place at 148 (+4). Freshman Erynne Lee added an even par 72, an improvement of two strokes from Friday's round. She was tied for third place at 146 (+2). Tied for 17th place at 150 (+6) were senior Brianna Do and junior Lee Lopez, who shaved four and two shots, respectively, off their first round scores. Finally, sophomore Ani Gulugian improved by four shots with a 74 (+2) and was tied for 29th at 152 (+8).
