LAS CRUCES, N.M. (AP) - The men’s and women’s rodeo teams from New Mexico State University are headed to Wyoming for the College National Finals Rodeo.

The university announced Thursday that both teams finished second in the Grand Canyon region this season, qualifying them for the finals.

Head coach Logan Corbett doesn’t want to make any predictions. He says anything is possible during finals since the best student athletes from across the country will be participating.

The men’s team has six riders who will compete for points. The women’s team has six but only four compete for points.

New Mexico State University has made several appearances at the finals in recent years but has not had a national champion since 2008. This will be Corbett’s fourth time taking a team to the finals.
