Surprise, surprise: Air Force football tops MWC in Academic Progress Rate scores

Published: May 24, 2011, 5:17 pm, by admin

Air Force finished first among Mountain West football teams with a Academic Progress Rate score of 978 for the 2009-10 school year, edging out TCU at 972 and Utah’s score of 956. Last week, Air Force football, women’s cross country, wrestling and women’s track received Division I Academic Performance Public Recognition Awards.

Football coach Troy Calhoun should be happy with topping the Mountain West, although knowing Calhoun and how seriously he takes the APR, I wouldn’t be surprised if he was upset that the Falcons’ score dipped a bit. Air Force football’s APR scores were 983 and 988 the past two years.
