Aune originally committed to TCU for baseball but that did not work out. He would return to football by going to Arkansas for the spring before eventually transferring to North Texas.

It is not like Austin Aune cannot play. The week before his 29th birthday he won Offensive Player of the Week in the Conference USA.

North Texas was 7-5 this year, and Aune set a record by throwing his 32nd touchdown of the year in their conference title game.

If Aune makes an NFL roster he will be the first 30-year-old rookie.
