Mahoney chronicles the events, profiles winners, highlights outstanding individuals, and analyzes the organizational efforts that have contributed to the colorful history of college rodeo. She traces the changing role of women and notes their victories, which were ignored by much of the contemporary press in the early days of the sport. College Rodeo gives credit to the pioneers of college rodeo and includes rare photographs of rodeo teams, champions, and rodeo queens, blended with true-to-life details of sweat and tears that make intercollegiate rodeo such a popular sport.
