Oklahoma State University may have been denied a shot at the football national championship this year (thanks to an epic choke against Iowa State) but it looks like the OSU bass fishing team is picking up the slack, because a pair of Aggie anglers just picked up this year’s college bass fishing national championship.

From this story on
Oklahoma State University is the 2012 national champion in bass fishing. OSU Bass Club members Zack Birge of Blanchard and Blake Flurry of Roland won the Carhartt Bassmaster College National Championship, held at three different sites near Little Rock, Ark., last week.

The Cowboy seniors-to-be led from start to finish in the three-day team tourney, weighing in 16 pounds, 5 ounces Friday on Hurricane Lake for a three-day total of 37 pounds, 13 ounces. They finished almost three pounds ahead of second place Auburn. The first two days of fishing were on the Arkansas River and Lake Maumelle. The title earned Birge and Flurry a $5,000 prize, which will be divided among the anglers and the OSU Bass Fishing Club, said club president Chase Edmiston.

Congratulations to Birge and Flurry on the win.
