CASPER, Wyo. (AP) - Details are being worked out to stream the College National Finals Rodeo in Casper live online through ESPN3.

Casper is the site of the rodeo through 2022 under its current contract.

National Intercollegiate Rodeo Association Commissioner Roger Walters says ESPN and the rodeo association began working on the deal after realizing the Casper Events Center had the bandwidth to support streaming the event.

Walters tells the Casper Star-Tribune (https://bit.ly/1NOJLyD ) that the contract will likely be for two or three years.

In the past, the weeklong college rodeo was taped and aired later in the summer on ESPNU.



The 67th College National Finals Rodeo begins June 14.
