Nisen, 25, held strong as his bull, Buckaroo, did his kicking, spinning, snorting best to knock the cowboy off his back to no avail, and Nisen tied the Oregon Horse Center arena record with a score of 93 points.
Coupled with the 78 points he recorded in the first round, Nisen scored 171 total to limp away the winner of the fifth annual bull ride event, which consisted of 36 bull riders and 36 bulls.
"That bull had a lot of buck and he's a bigger bull, which is just the type I ride best," Nisen said.
While most cowboys spend the Fourth of July weekend roaming from rodeo to rodeo, Nisen's only trip was to Eugene.
Mariluch, who was tied with Nisen at 78 points after the first session, picked up a check for $1,925.
