The Wrangler National Finals Rodeo begins on Thursday, and CBS Sports Network will be there for all of it. The 10-round event will go on from Dec. 7-16 in Las Vegas, Nevada and will feature the top 15 contestants in everything from bull riding to steer wrestling. Contestants are seeking $10 million in prize money at the Thomas & Mack Center.

 

In addition, as the world’s best cowboys entered the arena at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas on Thursday night, one thing was noticeably missing — the number 58 bib on the back of the competitors. All of them came together ahead of the championship event and decided no one would wear the number to honor the 58 killed in the 1 October shooting.

The 10-day event is sold out once again, meaning attendance will likely be around 170,000 for the year.But for those who can’t get their hands on a ticket inside the arena, there are 35 watch parties around town for fans who came to town to enjoy the rodeo excitement. News Source
