UTEP Football Scores High Marks in the Classroom

The UTEP football team has recorded the second-best Academic Progress Rate (APR) among all FBS programs in the state of Texas, according to the latest figures released by the NCAA on Wednesday.

“We take great pride in the fact that every single player in our program is on point to get their degree and be successful in life,” UTEP coach Sean Kugler said.

The Miners’ APR for the four-year period ending in 2015-16 is 980.

Rice tops the field with an APR of 984, followed by UTEP, North Texas (979), Texas (978), Baylor (973), UTSA (965), Texas A&M (962), TCU (955), SMU (951), Texas Tech (947), Houston (942) and Texas State (940).

The APR measures eligibility and progress toward graduation for student-athletes.  The average football four-year APR released on Wednesday is 962.
