RENO, Nev. (AP) -Nevada running back Luke Lippincott has been granted a sixth year of eligibility due to a knee injury that forced him to miss most of last season.
The NCAA granted the medical hardship on Monday because Lippincott also missed the entire 2005 season with a leg injury. Last fall, he tore ligaments in his knee in Nevada's second game, against Texas Tech.
He led the Western Athletic Conference in rushing in 2007.
Lippincott plans to graduate in May and begin graduate studies in the fall.
Nevada will have three players who have rushed for more than 1,000 yards in a season: Lippincott, quarterback Colin Kaepernick and Vai Taua, the WAC's leading rusher in 2008.
Nevada opens its season Sept. 5 at Notre Dame.
