The Northern Iowa men's golf team rallied from five strokes back to win the Oral Roberts University Shootout on Tuesday.  Entering the day in fifth place after shooting a team score of 316, the Panthers made a remarkable 32-stroke turnaround, shooting 284 to take the championship. UNI got a strong round from top to bottom, with all five guys placing in the top 35, and two top 10 finishes from Jacob Bermel and Glenn Walls.  The Panthers defeated second-place Missouri State by three strokes. The host squad, Oral Roberts, finished in third place and was 12 strokes back.

It's the first meet championship for the UNI men's golf team since Sept. 25, 2006, when it won the DePaul Invitational at the Prairie Landing Golf Club in West Chicago, Ill.
