PUEBLO, Colo. – CBS Sports Network will air a half-hour documentary recapping the life and career of the PBR’s greatest bull of all times, Bushwacker. “Bushwacker: Legend of the Bull” debuts Sunday, Nov. 2 at 1 p.m. ET.

Bushwacker, dubbed the “baddest body in sports” by ESPN The Magazine’s 2013 The Body Issue, earned his third PBR World Champion Bull title on the final day of the 2014 PBR World Finals after dispatching 2004 PBR World Champion Mike Lee during the Built Ford Tough Championship Round. 

Bushwacker received a score of 46.5 points (out of 50 points) which, when added to the 45 points he earned for bucking off Brady Sims in Round 2 of the World Finals, gave him 91.5 total points and was enough to defeat the seven other World Champion Bull contenders.

Bushwacker concluded his 2014 season with a 14-0 record on the BFTS and 17-0 overall. He bucked off 64 of his 66 challengers over the course of his six-year career on the BFTS. Overall, Bushwacker slammed 83 of his 86 opponents to the ground since his first out in 2009.
The bovine athlete ended his career with a streak of 20 consecutive BFTS buckoffs, after J.B. Mauney ended his PBR-record streak of 42 consecutive BFTS buckoffs in August 2013 when he rode him for 95.25 points in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

Tune-in to CBS Sports Network Sunday, Nov. 2, at 1 p.m. ET to remember Bushwacker’s career and celebrate this great champion. To view a clip of the documentary click here, “Bushwacker: Legend of the Bull.
