Oregon State quarterback Jake Luton has been granted a sixth year of eligibility, the NCAA announced Thursday.
Luton has started nine career games for the Beavers, passing for 2,513 yards with a 62.1 completion percentage (223 of 359) and 14 touchdowns. He was named the Pac-12 offensive player of the week following last season’s come-from-behind overtime victory at Colorado.
“I want to thank Beaver Nation for their support the last two years — it’s that support that helped make my decision to seek a sixth year,” Luton said.
Luton started five games last season, but missed all or parts of the other seven contests with an ankle sprain. He missed eight games in 2017 after suffering a spine injury in the fourth game of the year at Washington State.
