Popo Aumavae might get an additional year of eligibility from the NCAA

After this season, Popo Aumavae’s collegiate career could continue. The nose tackle for the Oregon Ducks is considering asking the NCAA for an additional year of eligibility in order to prepare for a potential comeback in 2023 after suffering a season-ending right foot injury late in fall camp.


If given an additional year of eligibility, the sixth-year senior might return, according to Oregon coach Dan Lanning, who added that “there absolutely is” a chance. After Oregon’s practice on Tuesday, Lanning said, “We’re absolutely analyzing it with Popo and we’re striving to bring the rest of our guys back from injury.”

Aumavae underwent surgery the first week of September, and for the past five weeks, she has been riding a scooter. While recovering from surgery for a torn labrum he sustained late in the previous season, when he recorded a career-high 36 tackles with three for loss in 13 games, he missed spring practice.
