Fall reporting a week away for football

GREELEY, Colo. -- For those who have been suffering from football withdrawals, the wait is almost over as the University of Northern Colorado reports for camp in a week.

The Bears, under the direction of first-year head coach Earnest Collins Jr., report to campus for meetings Wednesday, Aug. 3, with their first practice starting at 3 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 4.

The team will have 19 practices before beginning classes Aug. 22, with all practices being open to the public and media. The season kicks off Sept. 3 as the Bears welcome Lindenwood University to Nottingham Field for a 1:35 p.m. start.

Collins has 34 letterwinners returning from last year's 3-8 team and is excited to begin his first year at his alma mater.
