ESPN is reporting that Oregon star cornerback Ifo Ekpre-Olomu's season is over after suffered a severe knee injury during the Ducks' practice Tuesday.

Senior defensive back Dior Mathis, who spent the spring and fall battling with Troy Hill for the corner spot opposite Ekpre-Olomu, will likely move into Ekpre-Olomu's spot for the second-ranked Ducks' College Football Playoff matchup with No. 3 Florida State in the Rose Bowl.

Ekpre-Olomu has a $3 million loss of value insurance policy, which has been paid for by the University of Oregon, a source with knowledge of the arrangement told ESPN.

If he slips in the NFL draft because of this injury, he will begin collecting money at the beginning of the second round. If he slips past the beginning of the third round, he would receive all $3 million.
Ekpre-Olomu was a finalist for the Jim Thorpe Award, given to the country's top defensive back.
