||B.A.S.S. has held nine previous events on the Red, including the 2009 Classic won by Skeet Reese of Auburn, Calif., with 54 pounds, 13 ounces. The 2012 Classic will be new and different in several significant ways. First, it will feature winners from the 2011 Elite Series and Opens, not just the anglers with the highest points totals on those circuits. For another, the first Bassmaster College Bass Champion, Andrew Upshaw of Stephen F. Austin State University, will be competing against the pros and Federation Nation champions in the Classic. Finally, since 2009 champ Skeet Reese didn’t qualify for the 2012 championship, we’re guaranteed to have a different winner.
