Aurilia started and finished the day tied for 23rd, ultimately signing for a 1-over 217 (72-70-75), his best finish since the season opener.
Senior Jack Boulger (76-68-74), junior Krando Nishiba (75-69-74) and sophomore Jackson Rivera (73-71-74) all tied for 27th at 2-over 218.
Freshman Mahanth Chirravuri tied for 43rd at 5-over 221 (76-70-75), the first time he has not been among USC's top two in an event this fall.
