TULSA, Okla. – Major League Fishing (MLF), the world’s largest tournament-fishing organization, has announced the schedule and details for the 2022 Wiley X College Fishing Faceoffs. The Wiley X College Faceoffs – originally launched in 2019 – are single-day tournaments in a four-event series where competitors will fish in an MLF-style catch, weigh, immediate-release format at each event. The College Faceoff tournaments occur on the Saturdays following an Abu Garcia College Fishing competition on the same body of water. 

“The Wiley X College Fishing Faceoff events are a great way for our student anglers to feel the excitement and intensity of the SCORETRACKER® leaderboard and compete in MLF’s catch, weigh, immediate-release format,” said Kevin Hunt, MLF Senior Director of Tournament Operations, College and High School Fishing. “The anglers that competed in last year’s Faceoff events all thoroughly enjoyed competing in them, and I am sure that the anglers that compete in these events will also find them very fun and beneficial.”

The results from the College Fishing tournament the previous day will determine the 20 competitors for the Wiley X College Faceoff, with the top two teams (four anglers) from the top five schools in the regular season tournament qualifying to fish in the 10-boat faceoff the following day.

Coverage will be provided for each Wiley X College Faceoff at MajorLeagueFishing.com and on MLF social media outlets, including interviews and a trophy presentation for top finishers. Top individual teams will be recognized, and the school with the highest total combined weight from their two participating teams will be crowned the Wiley X Faceoff Champions. Sponsor prizes, including Wiley X sunglasses, will be awarded to the top finishers.
