Which Team Ropers Will Win $50K at RodeoHouston?

One team will walk away with $100,000 after RodeoHouston's Championship Shootout March 19, 2022. Here's who's fought for their chances to rope two more head in NRG Stadium.

RodeoHouston’s tournament-style format saw ropers compete in their sets of eight teams over three rounds, with the top four money earners in each set moving on to two semifinals. The top four in each of the two semifinals advanced to Saturday’s Championship.  

Those who didn’t make it out of the semifinals went to a wildcard round, with the top two in that round Friday also advancing to the Championship. The Championship at 2:45 p.m. CT, however, isn’t how the rodeo ends. The top four in that round immediately head to the Championship Shootout to determine the event’s actual winner.
