College National Finals Rodeo Champ and Resistol Rookie of the Year Billy Bob Brown helped sort the team roping steers into the three pens you've seen all week at the Finals, and he's helped us assess each team's chances with each steer, night by night. 

"This should be interesting tonight with the strong pen," Brown said. "There are definitely a couple that you wouldn’t want in their position, but there's also lot of chances. Great talent and roping all week and all my respect to the guys. Good luck tonight fellas; it’s been a fun week."

Kolton Schmidt and Hunter Koch: 768

This was Clay Tryan's first steer, and he shuffled out of the corner and Jake Long missed him. Jeff Flenniken and Tyler Worley were a 5.6 on this steer in Round 4, and he was sharp and down the middle. Erich Rogers was 5.3 on this steer. He stepped left pretty hard for Rogers but they made a great run.

Brenten Hall and Chase Tryan: 821

This is Jeff Flenniken and Tyler Worley's first steer, and he was medium-plus and right down the middle. Flenniken and Worley knocked him down in 6.7. Chad Masters and Wesley ran this steer in Round 4 and were 4.9. Dustin Egusquiza was off the barrier on this steer in Round 7 and split the horns. He’s sharp and runs.

Jeff Flenniken and Tyler Worley: 713

Clay Smith and Jade Corkill had him in the first round to be 5.1. Straight and down the middle. Nelson Wyatt and Levi Lord were 4.8 on this steer, and he was sharp and straight. Kolton Schmidt and Hunter Koch made a 4.4-second run to be third in Round 7.

Nelson Wyatt and Levi Lord: 826
