Virginia Tech’s Wyatt Blevins and Carson Rejzer triumphed over Georgia Southern University in the 2012 Ranger Cup University head-to-head on Lake Amistad, Tx, with a five fish limit of 22.53 pounds.
The Ranger Cup is an all-expenses paid televised one day tournament for college teams affiliated with either FLW or ACA. Winners take home $2,000.
This was the final event of Blevins’ collegiate career and he summed up the spirit of the event nicely:
“The whole experience was incredible. We were flown in, fished out of brand new boats and treated like pros the entire time. The fact we went out and caught a ton of fish was just a bonus – this was really a once in a lifetime deal.”
Registration is free, but there are requirements for displaying logos and patches. The two highest finishing teams at the end of the FLW/ACA season then qualify for the event, usually held late in the year.
