Big Win For NT Falcons

The North Texas Falcons lost a huge monkey off their backs with a 25-20 over the North Texas Longhorns.

It's the first win for the Falcons over the Longhorns in nine years.

"The guys are on cloud nine," Falcons general manager Greg Otto said.

John Brown caught a pair of touchdowns, while Dakota Liles added the other TD.

The Falcons return to action on the road against the Weatherford Bullets on Feb. 25, with the team's first regular season home game set for March 17 against the Denton Rhinos at City View's Mustangs Field.
