The University of Miami will host the event which will be played at the 18-hole, par-71, 6,800-yard Biltmore Country Club located in Coral Gables, Fla.
The 10-team field will host two top-25 ranked teams in Oklahoma (16th) and host Miami (24th).
Barry University, one of the top NCAA Division II programs in the country, will also be in the field and are ranked fifth in D-II golf.
