COLLEGE FOOTBALL: Falcons set for early start of practice

UTPB’s football team kicks off summer practices before the sun comes out, getting started at 6 a.m. Monday on Falcon Field.

The Falcons are coming off a 5-0 mark in their abbreviated spring season after the 2020 fall season was delayed because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

UTPB has won six in a row, the longest streak in program history. The Falcons open the 2021 season against the University of Fort Lauderdale on Sept. 4 at Ratliff Stadium.
