DJ Uiagalelei’s girlfriend is going viral following the passer’s long-awaited debut with the Beavers. While the quarterback picked apart a San Jose State defense on the field, his better half was making waves off of it.

She was seen rooting Uiagalelei on from the stands, grabbing the attention of many college football viewers.

After transferring from Clemson, Uiagalelei landed in Corvallis. Oregon State opened its 2023 season against the Spartans on the road, but they’d prove no test for the Beavers.

Quarterback play was a big part of OSU’s 42-17 blowout as Uiagalelei threw for 239 yards and three touchdowns on 20-of-25 passing. He added a pair of rushing scores to help his team pull away.

If you’d looked at his recruiting profile, those numbers wouldn’t come as a surprise. The signal caller was once a five-star prospect that committed to Clemson in hopes of seeing the same success as players like Deshaun Watson and Trevor Lawrence.

Unfortunately, his production didn’t match the expectations.

Uiagalelei struggled with consistency, with a low point coming in his regular season finale against South Carolina last year. The 99-yard dud allowed the Gamecocks to leave Death Valley with a 31-30 victory, ending the Tigers’ 40-game home winning streak.

With Cade Klubnik overtaking him on the depth chart, he headed to the West Coast for his final season.

DJ Uiagalelei shined in his OSU debut, but his girlfriend might’ve shined even brighter.

Photos of Ava Pritchard started surfacing online after cameras found her in the stands in San Jose. A number of friends and followers began reposting her appearance at the game, which she uploaded to her Instagram story over the weekend.

Pritchard is no stranger to the spotlight.

While DJ Uiagalelei was throwing passes at Clemson, his girlfriend was a member of the Tigers’ volleyball team.

According to her bio, she was a team captain in 2021 while leading the Tigers with 83 blocks.
