Match 6: Texas 17, North Carolina State 14

Arizona took a 14-5 lead in to halftime thanks to early tries by Bryan Maxwell and Dominick Goldston and two successful conversions by Maxwell. Texas scored late in the first half to cut in to the lead with a try by Noah Villalobos, but a missed conversion kept the Longhorns down 14-5.

The Longhorns picked up an early try with Eric Luikens running up the middle of the field and making the conversion to pull Texas within two of the Wolfpack. Texas took their first lead of the match following a long run by Taylor Hayes, who showed a good burst of speed and had the angle as he moved from left to right on the pitch. The try gave Texas a late 17-14 lead following a missed conversion off the side of the foot.

Texas will take on Arizona (1-0), who defeated Oklahoma (0-1) in Match 5 (31-12), in Match 13 at 2:34. NC State takes on Oklahoma in Match 14 at 2:57.
