Charlottesville, Va. - The No. 11 ranked Virginia men's golf team will participate in the inaugural DICK's Sporting Goods Collegiate Cup this Friday through Sunday at the Golf Club of Tennessee in Kingston Springs.

Five teams from the SEC and ACC will play Friday and Saturday in a 54-hole stroke-play format, with the two conferences paired against each other in a match play format on Sunday.

The Golf Club of Tennessee will be set up as a par-71, 7,144-yard layout.

The Cavaliers will be joined by Vanderbilt, Texas A&M, Tennessee, Mississippi State, and Georgia representing the SEC, while the ACC teams in attendance will include Boston College, Clemson, Duke and Wake Forest.

Thirty-six holes of stroke play will be played on Friday and 18 on Saturday. On Sunday, the ACC and SEC teams will be matched against one another according to their finish in the 54-hole stroke-play portion of the tournament.

Virginia's lineup will feature Denny McCarthy, Ji Soo Park, Jimmy Stanger, David Pastore and Nick McLaughlin.

McCarthy led UVa in its season-opening second-place finish at the Northern Intercollegiate. He shot 2-under 214 to finish fourth at the 15-team tournament. Park and Stanger tied for ninth at 217 and Pastore was 15th at 219.

ESPNU will air a one-hour recap of the DICK's Sporting Goods Collegiate Cup on Sunday, Oct. 13 at noon.
