Week 0 has come and gone, and Week 1 is underway as of Thursday night. One of the teams that enter this weekend at 1-0 is the North Texas Mean Green, who beat UTEP on Saturday, 31-13.

At the helm for the Mean Green is quarterback Austin Aune. He completed 16 passes for 236 yards and three touchdowns, without an interception. Aune led his team to its first win of the season and earned Conference USA Player Of The Week honors in the process.

In addition to his on-field talent, he has one of the most unique stories in college football.

Austin Aune is the oldest starting quarterback on the FBS level

The North Texas quarterback graduated high school in 2012. Born in 1993, he will turn 29 years old on Tuesday.

Aune, who saw time for North Texas in each of the last three seasons, won the starting job outright during fall camp. It marks his fifth year at the collegiate level after beginning at Arkansas during the spring of 2018 and transferring to UNT before that fall.

Yes, you read that correctly. Aune graduated high school six years before he enrolled in college.
