2017 Championship Roundup with Auburn University

2017 Championship: Auburn University Looked to Repeat

The 2016 BoatUS Collegiate Bass Fishing Championship presented by Cabela’s winners Mitchell Jennings and Cole Burdeshaw from Auburn University came into the 2017 Championship looking to do what no other team in the history of the BoatUS Collegiate Bass Fishing Championship presented by Cabela’s has done. These two anglers had the opportunity to win back-to-back National Championships and when the event was all said and done they came up only 0.61 pounds short of making history, but still were able to take home second place after two days of great fishing. Let’s take a look at what these two had to say about the tournament and the event overall.

Despite falling short of a repeat, Jennings and Burdeshaw finished 2nd and talked to us about what  their Day 2 on Pickwick Lake was like, as well as defending the title.
