Localized College Team Tournaments

Outlaw Outdoors, one of the newest bass fishing tournaments, fishing Lake Sam Rayburn, regularly announces a new division where localized college teams can qualify for the College National Championship.

Outlaw Outdoors and Bassmaster have combined forces and will bring a college series to Texas where teams can earn a berth to the Super Bowl of college fishing…The Bassmaster College National Championship. As of now, there is no other trail of its kind in the country.

Outlaw Outdoors states that this is a pilot program for this type of localized team tournament. The winners can earn a berth to the College National Championship. For the 2019-2020 season, Outlaw will host four events qualifying multiple teams to the big show.

The new tournament trail division will alleviate the thousands of miles required travel and the weeks of missed school.
