FLIPPIN, ARK. (December 5, 2011) The merging of school rivalries with a passion for fishing continues to draw competitors and spectators to the growing sport of collegiate bass fishing. Coming off its successful inaugural season, Ranger Cup University returns in 2012 with more opportunities for anglers to cash in on tournament success, as well as save money on custom team apparel.

Modeled after the most lucrative contingency program in the industry, the Ranger CupĀ®, Ranger Cup University is open to collegiate anglers fishing in either FLW- or BoatUS-college affiliated competitions. Signup for Ranger Cup University is free and exclusively for collegiate anglers, regardless of the brand of boat they own. To remain qualified in the program, anglers need only adhere to simple clothing and logo requirements, which thanks to partnerships with tournament apparel providers Angler Skins and Gemini Custom Apparel, has never been easier. Both companies are offering special discounts exclusively to college fishermen participating in Ranger Cup University.

Once the tournament season is underway, Ranger Cup University makes on-the-water success even more lucrative for its participants. Payout opportunities are available at virtually all of the sport's major events, from the Boat US Pepsi Open and Big Bass Bash to each and every FLW College Regional. The 2012 season culminates with a Grand Prize package, including the chance at an expense paid trip to Texas' famed Choke Canyon Reservoir to compete for $2,000 cash and prizes, as well as the title of Ranger Cup University's Team of the Year.
