  Owen Pappoe had his eye on the No. 0 long before the NCAA approved the change to make it an eligible jersey number back in April. It's actually something Pappoe has wanted since well before he stepped foot on the Plains. "I was trying to get it in high school, but it was the same as college; it wasn't an eligible number," Pappoe said. "So, when I heard they were going to pass it, I told Coach, 'Hey, Coach, I want to one of the first guys to get dibs.'" Pappoe, who wore No. 10 as a freshman last season, heard rumors about a looming change in the legality of the No. 0 months before the NCAA voted on the change. It was back in December or January, he said, that he first became aware of the possibility and approached his coaches about it.

According to Pappoe, Auburn's coaches had not heard about the possibility of that change yet-but assured him that if it happened, he would get the opportunity to change jersey numbers Then in February, the NCAA Football Rules Committee recommended the change to allow players to wear No. 0 in response to the popularity of single-digit numbers. Two months later, in April, the NCAA Playing Rules Oversight Panel approved of the new rule, opening up an opportunity for hundreds of players across the country to rock the peculiar jersey number. - Birmingham News
