LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) -- A group of University of Kentucky students is starting a rodeo team. So far they don't have a stadium, a formal schedule or much funding, but there is a lot of enthusiasm among supporters.

The team plans to become part of the National Intercollegiate Rodeo Association in 2014. Kentucky's public universities have only one other rodeo program.

Fees at Murray State University include $250 for a National Intercollegiate Rodeo Association card, $500 to rent a barn stall, $65 for the first event entered with $45 per additional event.

Because UK's team hasn't staged its first season, dues start at $25 a semester. A UK news release said additional fees could be anywhere from $150 to $500 a semester, depending on the events students choose.
